How to Get Fired Using Twitter

sleeping_with_boss

You'd think people would know better than to share damaging info online. Alas, no. Not even close.

On the Internet, anything that can be used to act stupid will be used to act stupid. Like the bank intern who told the boss he had a family emergency and then posted photos of himself at a Halloween party on Facebook. Now that Twitter has become the favored medium for oversharing, so too has it become the best way to get fired, double quick. Resume Bear just did a quick Twitter search, and posted 30 tweets likely to haunt their authors. We've excerpted a few below. The rest are here. You've been warned.

UPDATE: Reader Johnny Makker suggests that there be a 4/20 version of this post. After all, there's a mountain of raw material to choose from. (Thanks Johnny!)

    @Charli---Thanks for reading and commenting. I'm right there with you. For some reason, people still equate "immediate and online" with "anonymous." Who knows how. Or they don't realize that an anonymous screen doesn't mean anything when everyone you know knows your handle.

    I am on Twitter and sometimes I see what people say and think to myself, "Wow, don't these people realize that this is for the world to see?"
