Actress Sees Surge in Twitter Account After Accidentally Tweeting Topless Photo

Sep 13, 2012  •  Post A Comment

Alison Pill, an actress currrently appearing on HBO’s "The Newsroom," accidentally tweeted a topless photo of herself on Wednesday, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The photo, which was quickly removed from Pill’s Twitter account but found its way to various locations on the Internet, depicts her lying on a bed topless with a pair of large eyeglasses, the story says.

"Ugh. My tech issues have now reached new heights, apparently. How a deletion turned into a tweet… Apologies," Pill tweeted after she sent the photo.

Pill, who plays associate producer Maggie on the show, had attracted about 2,000 new Twitter followers by Wednesday afternoon following the Twitter mistake, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The Times piece adds: “The actress’ gaffe was a bit of art imitating life as well, after an early ‘Newsroom’ episode featured a top producer — played by Emily Mortimer, not Pill — whose stereotypical-silly-girl lack of tech savvy resulted in her emailing touchy personal information to a companywide message loop.”

We think they mean “life imitating art,” but you probably get the point.
