On most days, Sarah O'Connor is a Financial Times reporter on the employment beat. But there are other days when a new entry in the Terminator franchise opens in theaters, a malfunction at an automobile factory leads to tragedy, and a woman who has a similar name to the protagonist in theĀ TerminatorĀ filmsĀ sends a tweet about said tragic factory accident. Today was one of those days.


O'Connor's tweet was immediately recognized for its unintended ironyĀ and, well, things snowballed from thereĀ (h/t Max Fischer).

For the sake of factory workers the world over ā€“ā€“ and Sarah O'Connor's Twitter mentions ā€“ā€“ let's hope she doesn't have to write any more stories about robot accidents.
