Following a week of twitter quitters (Miley Cyrus, Courtenay Love, Kanye West etc..) an interesting little twit fight is brewing after Meghan “daughter of John now Daily Beast columnist” McCain ‘innocently’ posted a twitpic of herself after tweeting about her “spontaneous night in”…

McCain initially tweeted about her night in:

@McCainBlogette my Andy Warhol biography and takeout….I’m getting old.

Then followed a series of very offended tweets:

@McCainBlogette so I took a fun picture not thinking anything about what I was wearing but apparently anything other than a pantsuit I am a slut, this is

@McCainBlogette why I have been considering deleting my twitter account, what once was fun now just seems like a vessel for harassment

@McCainBlogette I am going to take some more time to think about it but seriously I was just trying to be funny with the book and that I’m a dork staying in

@McCainBlogette when I am alone in my apartment, I wear tank tops and sweat pants, I had no idea this makes me a “slut”, I can’t even tell you how hurt I am

@McCainBlogette ok I am getting the f-ck off twitter, promise not to delete my account until I sleep on it, thank you for the nice words supporters

@McCainBlogette I do want to apologize to anyone that was offended by my twitpic, I have clearly made a huge mistake and am sorry 2 those that are offended.

And the twitpic in question?
