Twitter thread features graphic 'confessions' from Wash. students
VANCOUVER, Wash. - Parents, you may want to keep your eye on this one.
Hundreds of Clark County teens are bragging about their sexual escapades on Twitter.
The posts are anonymous, but have explicit descriptions of sexual encounters by both boys and girls.
Some of the posters claim to have had sexual encounters with adults, even teachers - even at school.
The Twitter account is called "Clark County Fessions."
Tweets represented students from most of Clark County's high schools.
Vancouver, Evergreen and Battle Ground districts responded with statements saying they do not monitor sites that aren't sponsored by the schools or the districts. And they have programs to help families with Internet safety issues. They also investigate bullying and harassment.
The assistant superintendent of La Center School District told KATU they'll reach out to student leadership teams to approach other kids and appeal to their sense of right and wrong.
La Center kids popped up often in the Twitter thread, in a contest to see which school is "ratchet," meaning the nastiest or most promiscuous.
That bothered Samantha Adams, a senior at La Center High School.
"It's really vulgar stuff," she said.
She's worried what the comments can do to people's reputations, Including her own.
"They don't name names, but with the tagging and retweeting, everybody knows who the tweets are about," she said.
Other students have posted negative comments about the thread.
Social media experts say one of the best things parents can do is to make sure their kids have unlocked Twitter accounts that can be supervised.
