'Financial Times' correspondent Sarah O'Connor didn't make the connection when she tweeted about a tragic robot accident.

Sarah O'Connor may be a successful journalist who covers employment for London's prestigious Financial Times, but she really needs to brush up on her pop culture. She's never seen a Terminator movie, and she never knew that her name was one "O'" away from that of series protagonist Sarah Connor, or that the movies were about a robot uprising. So when she tweeted this link to an FT article that was actually quite sad, about a worker at a Volkswagen factory being killed by an industrial robot, she was baffled by Twitter's response.

Once O'Connor brushed up on her Terminator lore, she tried to bring some sanity to the conversation. I guess she doesn't know much about Twitter either.

That's a good point. Somebody did die. And if the mainstream media doesn't educate itself about Skynet, many more will.
