Know the difference between a CC and a BCC

The HR manager at Twitter forgot the difference, and not in just any email but in a rejection email to 186 job applicants.

Welcome to Email Communication 101: Never cc folks who are not supposed to know each other on the email. There's something called a Bcc, y'know!

Truth of the times, in a transparent world, your mistakes would get magnified. Specially if you work at a social media firm. Yeah, life's not fair.

This is not your father's HR job anymore.
