The pinnacle of social media is demonstrated in the following video.
While enjoying the pageantry of the Melbourne Cup, a robust Aussie sheila gets a wee bit tipsy, starts mouthing off and ends up swinging. All very amusing for assembled onlookers.
For many in the immediate crowd, the knee jerk response was to grab their smartphone and start filming the unfolding spectacle. Within moments, several versions of the incident were uploaded on YouTube and are currently going viral.
Oh dear...with social media, it's becoming very difficult to hide;-)
