Today's Wall Street Journal discovers that the fashion industry has embraced Twitter (what?!) and explores what happens when the tweeting goes too far. Case in point: this past Fashion Week, Robert Duffy, Marc Jacobs' chief executive, tweeted an invitation to a post-show party along with an attached photo of a naked male party-goer (don't get too excited—no full frontal, the shot was from behind). Duffy, who has since retired from Twitter, later apologized for the slip, telling the reporter "I thought it was funny", but the naked guy's wife "didn't agree". [WSJ, subscription req'd]
