Sam Smith proves he has no idea how Twitter works

It’s a good thing he can sing, because Sam Smith would make a terrible social media manager: The British R&B star tweeted last night that he didn’t feel well enough to stick around and greet fans after a concert—then posted four hours later from a karaoke bar.


Oh, well. It’s not like he ended his night out on the town by trying to reinforce the impression that he was, in fact, a bit under the weather. Wait, what? He did? OK, I give up.


All these posts are still standing, perhaps because Smith is sleeping one off, but the response from his devotees was mostly lighthearted and sympathetic, if occasionally disapproving.

His real faux pas, of course, was not cutting back on the kisses while he was supposedly sick.
