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?

      +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.

    It's amazing u can get fired for just one bad word or sentence. I can understand if you act very inappropriate or do illegal acts. But expressing an opinion vaguely one time when you have worked hard for the company for many years should not automatically lead to you getting fired, at least a warning and a well thought discussion about it should be enough. Besides hiring someone new with the same qualities can also be risky and very costly and take time depending on what kind of job it is. But i know it doesn't work that way from a business standpoint

    What's really interesting is that East Asian Women have the lowest rate of STD's and black women have the highest. It's almost as if the less intelligent a person is, the less likely they are to use protection, thus resulting in Aids/STD's. Also, Rosanne didn't compare her to Planet of the Apes, it was a specific character, which the black woman absolutely does look like, look it up.
    The female reporter got raped in Egypt because rape is an integral part of Egyptian Culture, Islamic Culture, and so it was allowed to take place. In India, a four-year-old child was gang-raped in a hospital, in a fucking hospital. This tragedy took place because it's an integral part of Indian Culture, so it was allowed to take place. In sub-Saharan Africa, their "Men" rape babies to cure their Aids, this happens because it's a part of their culture.
    Some cultures are better than others and to pretend otherwise is to deny reality.

    While including Rosanne makes a certain sense, ambien is widely recognized as a drug that most certainly can cause one to say and do extremely stupid shit. And the woman she was referring to does resemble a Caucasian more than African background. So I have to criticise the way Rosanne was included here as a poor representation of what actually happened.

    We need to start organizing boycotts of companies that fire people for such superficial reasons. They don't deserve to be in business, and their owners don't deserve to feed their children. Their families need to be made to suffer too. Not that I would ever be in favor of making innocent people suffer just because of differences in opinion, but that does not change the fact that we live in a society which considers making innocent people suffer due to differences in opinion to be one of it's highest ideals. I do not agree with these rules but I am bound by them like everyone else.

    Personally, I don't like the idea of companies looking up people's personal lives to decide whether to let them have or keep a job. Everything you think, do, and say on personal time should not have to meet with your employer's approval.
