Jason at Techcrunch made note of an unfortunate screw-up at Twitter where applicants for the product manager position (you know, the one that is allegedly tasked with coming up with a way for Twitter to make money) were all made aware of one another via the failure to put all the recipients of a rejection letter in the BCC field.
I don’t have much to say about the actual incident – it happens. I don’t do it often, but once or twice I’ve forgotten to use the proper field for my carbon copies on an email. Thankfully it hasn’t blown up in my face in a significant way.
What is interesting is the fact that I wasn’t on the recipient list for those rejected.
Which means that they did get that thing I sent ‘em.
