Florida Initiative for Electoral Reform president Yury Konnikov wanted to send the email below to a colleague, but it ended up going out to nearly 200 Florida journalists when he accidentally hit “send” to his entire contacts list instead of “save.”
In the email, Konnikov tells his co-worker how to make editors “feel they are getting exclusive dibs” on op-eds.
I counted 199 addresses attached to his message. (You’ll notice that I erased portions of the few displayed here.)
Konnikov followed it up with this apology and tweet:
Tech lesson of the day: Using BCC to copy/paste a contact list on a mobile device then pressing SEND, not an act of brilliance #justsayin
