    Yes, there are privacy settings but like facebook, you have to set them. They are not defaulted "on" when you set up an account. Most kids don't use them and that's how their tweets are seen by schools and how tweets are seen by employers.

    Social Media Statistics Per Wiki dot........

    • leaving privacy settings as default ‘open’ – 41% of children aged 8-17 who had a visible profile had their profile set so that it was visible to anyone (Children, young people and online content quantitative research) and 44% of adults who had a current profile said their profile could be seen by anyone6 (this was more likely among those aged 18-24)

    Most would be >50%, FOLLOW?

    Why do you always choose to get so technical? You push this stuff to the point of bullying.

    At my place of employment, as I am sure is the same for most businesses, if some one does something inappropriate on the employers computers then there are punishments. In most cases it is by termination of employment, so how would this case be any different? Isn't it the school's job to educate and prepare students to enter and know how to become productive employees/citizens? As this students mother had said he was punished once before for this type of action, in the real world how many chances do you get? I believe that the school is correct in what they are doing, espicially by making sure that this student is continuing to get his education and will graduate with a diploma. Maybe this young man will learn a lifes lesson from this and not be a statistic as an employee being terminated for something inappropiate.

    My Step Grandaughter goes to Fremont school and she got suspended for 5 days for slamming the principal's office door closed.
