Insanely Dumb Tweets That Got People Fired

  • Published on Jan 12, 2019
  • What if you tweeted something horrible and got fired for hit? Well, these people did! These people tweeted almost like it was a challenge to get fired !
    Twitter can be a great place to share ideas. The microblogging platform has a large worldwide audience. It is estimated that every day 100 million people are daily active users on Twitter and that Twitter has 261 million international users.
    However, as with any other social media, you have to be careful about what you say and post on Twitter. A growing problem is people losing their jobs over inappropriate tweets. Employers attempt to address this problem by establishing rules for employees to follow. According to lawyer Bryan Wood, “many major employers have social media policies that address activity on both personal and professional accounts.” They include advice about “basic decency” and what would seem to be common sense measures such as “be respectful” and “protect proprietary company information.” What can happen if you don’t follow these policies? We will find out as we examine our top 20 job-ending tweets in this episode of The Infographics Show, “Worst Tweets That Got People Fired.”

    How do you write your comments and tweets? Are you cautious or do you just post without thinking of the consequences?

      Sarcasm btw. But I avoid social media like the plague it's totally shagged and has done alot of damage to my family (which obviously isnt the medias fault) but that's how most people use it.

      +Haley G. You wrote a public anti Trump comment, so obviously you're getting response. Ik think you're blinded by hate. You're seeing things different because of that, and that's dangerous. But like I said, just leave if you don't like their videos.

    A lot of this stuff is simply people being so uptight and intolerant about everything.
    Everyone's a dam social justice warrior now. They want to be outraged. They want to be offended. They want to find things they disagree with or find distasteful! Just because they want to bitch and whine. So lame.
    There is nothing fair about this world. People dont have to agree. People dont have to bow to other peoples beliefs or sense of justice. We dont have to like the same things.
    A thread of disharmony running through a society is a great thing. It makes us more tolerant and appreciative of other views.
    Anyone out hunting for offensive words or behavior will find plenty on this planet. Lighten the hell up!
    The only place I visit is TVclip... mainly because here being offended is expected. I like that. That's called FREEDOM.

    I don't know why people think it's a good idea to post things on social media that could be considered offensive. Because people won't find it funny when someone makes a joke about something tragic. So I'm not sure why people post offense things thinking it will make people laugh. Sometimes I question people and their decisions.

    James Gunn being fired is ridiculous. Yes he tweeted a bunch of fucked up shit. If he had tweeted that stuff while working for Disney it's completely fair to fire him. That isn't the case though. Gunn made those tweets a decade ago. He apologized for making them numerous times and stopped tweeting like that. Disney knew about the tweets before they hired him. They were ok with it because he had apologized and owned the mistake. Then ten years later a alt right troll brings them up again and Disney caves. Again he never tweeted like that when employed by Disney. Disney knew about the tweets before hiring him. He had already apologized multiple times.
