On the same day that Terminator Genisys premiered on the big screen, a Financial Times reporter who bears almost the same name as the popular Sci-Fi heroine of the movie franchise unintentionally found herself at the receiving end of a Twitter explosion.
She tweeted: “A robot has killed a worker in a VW plant in Germany”
Her responses illustrate how she was caught completely off guard.
“Ok. I should have thought of my name and its implications before tweeting this!”
“Sigh. I’ve never even watched the films. Now my feed is full of people tweeting me about Skynet.”
“Guys, I don’t know what Skynet is. And I wouldn’t follow me – I tweet really boring stuff about unit wage costs and the like.”
