A Reconsideration Of Penelope Trunk, The Miscarriage-Tweeting Career AdvisorLindsay Robertson10/01/09 3:00pmFiled to: The twitsTwitter miscarriagePenelope TrunkAbortionmiscarriagePregnancyCareers113EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkLast week, career advisor Penelope Trunk Twittered about her miscarriage, sending the blogosphere into a frenzy. I, for one, was nonplussed. But after watching Trunk hold her own with CNN's Rick Sanchez, I've changed my mind. To a point.Today Penelope Trunk, CEO of brazencareerist.com and self-styled career advice expert, posted the video of her appearance on CNN on Tuesday, in which she defended her controversial decision to tweet about her miscarriage in a board meeting last week. While I haven't changed my mind (even a little) about the wisdom of announcing such private information in a professional setting (and, yes, her particular Twitter account was a professional setting and she framed it as career advice from an expert — this was not a woman venting to her friends; this was, essentially, a press release), I now believe that if this highly unusual exchange is what resulted, maybe the whole weird thing was worth it.
