Jersey Shore's Snooki Accidentally Tweets BlackBerry PIN

Oops! Snooki's Latest Tech Mishap

I know, I know. It's Jersey Shore and Snooki, but when it comes to the overhyped, overtanned cast, I can't help myself — I have a soft spot for the girl! Unfortunately, our girl suffered a big tech mishap. Yesterday, the reality star accidentally tweeted her BlackBerry Messenger PIN to all 300,000+ of her Twitter followers.

If you're not familiar, the BBM PIN allows any user with a BlackBerry to contact a user in a fashion similar to text messaging, without the data fees. Since it makes you so reachable, sharing your PIN is essentially the same thing as giving out your phone number. Apparently, Snooki got so many messages she had to ditch her BlackBerry in favor of a new phone, and since your BBM PIN is unique to your hardware, it's unchangeable. While giving out similar information may not be such a huge deal for someone who isn't in the public eye, don't forget the lesson here: be careful what you tweet!
