The great thing about Twitter is that it gets out information almost instantaneously.

The bad thing about Twitter is that sometimes very unfiltered information goes out to the masses, and that can lead to embarrassment and trouble.

Atlanta Falcons reciever Roddy White, in this Twitter rant with a fan chronicled by Bleacher Report, called the fan a 'disrespectful little peasant' on Monday night. Though he later apologized, White would have probably been better off just ignoring the criticism from the fan.

Yet another lesson hopefully learned about the two-edged sword that is Twitter.
