There is now a topless photo of doe-eyed Newsroom star Alison Pill floating around on the Internet. But the picture wasn’t uploaded by a vindictive ex or a phone hacker — Pill mistakenly tweeted the photo herself this morning, inadvertently showing her goods to 13,790 followers (and, by extension, everyone everywhere). That’s taking MacKenzie McHale’s tech incompetence to a whole new level.

Pill soon realized her error and deleted the tweet, sending out an apology to boot: “Yep. That picture happened. Ugh. My tech issues have now reached new heights, apparently. How a deletion turned into a tweet… Apologies.”

At least she doesn’t have to worry about how fiance Jay Baruchel will react to the errant pic. The actor retweeted Pill’s apology before laughing off the incident with a message of his own: “My fiancee is an [sic] hilarious dork. #imustgladitdidnthappentomefirst.” Two minutes later, he added, “Smartphones will get ya. CC @msalisonpill #vivaludditism.”

Viva Ludditism indeed! When he heard the news, Aaron Sorkin reportedly licked his lips, then started furiously rewriting The Newsroom‘s second season premiere.
