At least that is what he Tweeted on Saturday to his 1.6 million followers. Here is a little sample of Smith’s Tweets: Dear @SouthwestAir – I know I’m fat, but was Captain Leysath really justified in throwing me off a flight for which I was already seated? Wanna tell me I’m too wide for the sky? Totally cool.

It is becoming more and more important for companies and organizations to have the resources to find these Tweets, Youtube videos, etc…, so that they can successfully counter them with good PR responses. The following Tweets among many others were posted following Smiths disgruntled remarks: @ThatKevinSmith hey Kevin! Hey folks – trust me, I saw the tweets from @ThatKevinSmith I’ll get all the details and handle accordingly!
