Planning to Tweet or Instagram Your Ballot? You May Be Committing a Felony

Voting in a presidential election is pretty exciting. And, these days, when we do something exciting we want to tell the world about it through social network sites like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

But while there may be a temptation to take a photo of your completed ballot and post it on the internet with pride, it's not a very good idea. In fact in states like Wisconsin it's a felony to let anybody else see your ballot or a photo of your ballot.

Rihanna Unfollows Chris Brown on Twitter

Rihanna has some interesting priorities. The ‘Where Have You Been’ singer, who’s been ill enough to get hooked up to an IV lately, has finally cut off social media contact with ex Chris Brown. It wasn’t the fact that he beat her until she was bruised and bloody back in ’09 that did the trick, nor was it his heavily photographed romance with current flame Karrueche Tran.

What did it take for Rihanna to leave Breezy’s Twitter be? It was a thinly-veiled diss track.

Apparently, Minaj was so angered by fan site NickiDaily posting snippets from ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’ that she punished all of her fans by quitting Twitter. The album debuted at No. 1, so we’re not sure why the song postings incensed her enough to shut down her Twitter account.
