Passive aggressive confrontation using social networking tools

Inspired by a colleague lamenting excessively long meetings ...

  • Update your status on "I'm in a pointless meeting"

  • Twitter update: "On the count of three, let's all get up and say we have a conflict"

  • Email meeting etiquette guide to meeting invite list

  • Transcribe the meeting minutes in a blog post. Don't forget to insert commentary.

  • Call people out in Twitter for bad behavior without naming them. (hat tip to Nink)

Labels: ,


  • For extra credit:
    Randomly de-friend half of the meeting participants on facebook and update your status to something vague like, "XXX thinks resolving conflicts begins by eliminating the source"
