Fired Over a Tweet

Interesting article below about a recently hired employee who was fired, before the first day of work, for making less than flattering remarks on Twitter about her employer.

Here is the initial tweet by the employee: “Ew I start this [expletives] job tomorrow”

Response by the employer: “And…no you don’t start that job today! I just fired you!

Good luck with your no money, no job life!”

Follow up by the employee: “I got fired over Twitter.”
