Social media, like Twitter, can be a great asset in communications.  But, as we've seen recently with Congressman Anthony Weiner, it could also get you in hot water.  With so many tweets getting so many people in trouble, why bother?

FOX News Radio's Jared Halpern has some tips to safely navigate the Social Media Minefield in our special series...

Remember this pre-text message scandal?

"Indeed, I did have a relationship with Miss Lewinsky..."

The Clinton impeachment affair took years to develop.  Now, sex scandals move at the speed of tweets and status updates, providing electronic trails that last forever.

"If there had been sort of immediate documentation that was just irrefutable, there may have been a completely different ending with the Clinton scandal."

Crisis communications expert T.J. Walker warns it's not just celebrities who can be undone by an online life...

"Anything can, and will, be used against you."

Especially in a highly-competitive job market.  Ever Googled yourself?

"If you need somebody who is gonna work really hard, long hours, and you go to their Facebook page and it's 300 photos of that person getting drunk, that might tell you something."

Walker's advice?

"Don't put anything online that you wouldn't want your grandmother to see, your worst enemy to ever see."
