Kids' Twitter abuse earns suspensions

Police gave warnings to students

The B.C. Catholic has an article by Evan Boudreau about some misguided Catholic students who took to Twitter to insult their teachers. They learned a valuable lesson: 
While talk may be cheap, tweeting isn't.

"It came to the attention of the administration at the school that some disparaging, offensive, and totally inappropriate comments had been directed at specific teachers at St. Marguerite d'Youville School," said Bruce Campbell, director of communication for the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board. "The school investigated and found nine students involved in a Twitter discussion."

The remarks made ranged from sexually explicit comments to messages of violent aggression directed specifically at three of the school's teachers, two female and one male.
