Trevor Noah Has Staff Go Through Correspondents' Old Tweets & This Is A Smart Move
Before I ever even graduated high school, the unemployment horrors that could befall me because of a bad social media presence was drilled into my still-developing brain. I assume that I wasn't the only one terrorized by such a thing, either. Especially considering the fact that according to Vulture via The New York Times, The Daily Show host Trevor Noah, "had his team go through the old tweets of his new hires." But, what seemed like a Big Brother-type monitoring and self-monitoring of employees was actually quite the opposite. It seems that with Noah's youth comes another level of zen and understanding of the Internet that our older teachers and bosses didn't possess.
To put it simply, Noah is a total boss. But like, a really good one. One you'd want to have in case you really lived and tweeted a lot in your, uh, misguided and possibly drunken college youth. The kinds of tweets you don't want to be judged for the rest of your life by and not get a job because of. Not that I am insinuating that I wrote those types of social media posts or anything. *Gulps* He told The New York Times ,
Possibly the most reassuring aspect about the new host's level-headed approach to past social media sins is the fact that he's brought an even more accepting and "progressive" lens to The Daily Show. We have all done regrettable things in our youth, and it seems that social media records forces us to pay for them over and over again unfairly. So, instead of harping on what someone might deem as uncouth, Noah is focusing on making sure his correspondents are simply aware and mindful in the future. That makes him not just a good boss, but a great host as well.
