7 Tweets That Got People Fired

Tags: Scoopla, Twitter

Anyone can read your tweets, including your employer. Don’t say anything on Twitter you wouldn’t say to their face.


These people did not follow the simple rule of “Don’t tweet something if you think it’s inappropriate”. Yes, you are a comedian to your friends and your family think you are totes funny, but I bet your boss would be horrified if they heard what you were saying. Also, so are the general public.

Here are 7 tweets that just shouldn’t exist. Be warned some are just plain stupid and super offensive.

NUMBER 1

This girl thought it would be funny to dress as a victim of the Boston Marathon bombings. This is never ok. People died, and dozens were injured. She then did the worst thing imaginable and tweeted a pic of herself at work! She was told not to return.

NUMBER 2

This tweet was from a Director of Corporate Communications. She was heading off to Africa. She sent what she thought was a cheeky tweet before she got on her flight.

THIS IS THE MOST RACIST TWEET I HAVE EVER READ.

While she was sky high and internet free her tweet went viral and the company she worked for promptly fired her….and she hadn’t even touched down.

NUMBER 3

Seriously! This girl was offered a high paying job at Cisco. While she was thinking about the offer she tweeted her dilemma. The bloke who had offered her the job quickly said that he didn’t think she would be right. CLANG!

NUMBER 4

DO NOT EAT AT TACO BELL……Why would you even do this? Then he tweeted about it. Did the customer ask for wee on his food, I doubt it. (Although it is America)

NUMBER 5

This Aussie journo was a columnist for The Age newspaper. She sent out a few tweets that were totally not what The Age was all about.

One was about Bindi Irwin (who was underage at the time) the other was a super insulting and insensitive one about Rove McManus that read:

“Rove and Tasma look so cute… hope she doesn’t die, too.” His first wife Belinda Emmett sadly passed away from cancer.

NUMBER 6

What happens when you think you are tweeting a private message, but you are so totally not! THIS!

His name says it all, US Politician Anthony Weiner tweeted a pic of himself a little on the ‘excited’ side of things. He was in his undies, but the outline was noticeable.

NUMBER 7

This is the latest in a long line of twitter firings. This girl was about to start a new job, wasn't that keen though. Her new boss was alerted to her current mood and simply replied with the following…..

 

The moral of the twitter is....JUST DON'T!
