Dell kids ruin everything by tweeting

John Moe Aug 14, 2012

It might be a little harder to get motivated to come into work these days if you’re employed at Dell. First of all, you might not have known that your company spends $2.7 million a year to provide extra security for founder Michael Dell and his family. Then comes the news that Dell’s daughter Alexa, 18, was tweeting all sorts of information about where she was shopping and where she stayed while visiting New York. The tweets were also GPS enabled so one could tell exactly where she was. Her brother Zachary, 15, was shown on a blog about rich kids’ pictures on Instagram (who would RUN a blog like that? I mean… WHY?) at a buffet in Fiji and about to get on the family’s private jet. The photo was taken by his sister and set to public on Instagram.
The Dell kids have since been kicked off social media by their family.
