Golfer Luke Donald fell into Twitter’s “Weiner trap” (named after disgraced Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y.) — he accidentally posted a public tweet that he meant to send privately as a “direct message.” In Donald’s case, the tweet criticized the design of a golf course that had just gotten the better of him.
“Gil Hanse is a [expletive]. Haha,” Donald tweeted after scoring a bogey on the 18th hole at TPC Boston. Donald quickly deleted the tweet, but bloggers captured screen shots of it. Hanse, who designed the course, said no apology was necessary.
