Above is an example of why you should always dig back and find an original tweet to RT, instead of using MT. If you notice, the tweet changes between examples one and two — meaning the 100+ people who retweeted the second tweet are passing along incorrect information.
Be skeptical of a RT unless you can track down the original tweet.
“If you haven’t tracked down the original tweet and confirmed what it actually says, you might be passing on misinformation AND putting misinformation in someone else’s mouth.” - Daniel Victor

I do those because it’s like the real version of Good Morning, Vietnam, meeting people and seeing what I can do to help. They’re the best audiences I’ve ever had. The most powerful experience is visiting the wounded in hospitals. A friend of mine’s doing a program in San Francisco at a veterans’ hospital, getting them to do improv comedy as therapy. And it’s really helping. Comedy can be a cathartic way to deal with personal trauma.
