Some Outrageous Tweets That Caused People Fired

In January 2013, Carly McKinney, a 10th grade maths teacher at Overland High School in Aurora, Colorado was put on administrative leave. A local news station uncovered tweets containing revealing photos and boasts about bringing marijuana to school. One post read ," Naked, Wet, Stones" Watching a drug bust go down in the parking lot. It is funny cuz' I have weed in my car in the staff parking lot." Other messages suggested that teacher was grading the papers while under the influence of drug and spending time on Twitter instead of being productive during the school day. In her defence McKinney claimed that she and a friend created a page as parody and in fact she was never in the possession of drugs during the school day. Her students thought her racy photos and tweets about marijuana were pretty cool and protested online to get her back. Nonetheless McKinney was fired. *-- A Restaurant Waiter Was Fired For Tweeting About A Celebrity Dine And Dash:-
In 2009, Jane Adams, star of HBO's Hung ordered a soup and lemonade at Barney Greengrass Beverly Hills. Her check came to a reasonable amount of $13.44. Dams. unable to pay, explained that she had left her wallet in her car and said she would go out and get it, but never returned. Her frustrated waiter Jon-Barrett Ingles tweeted about it. Her agent paid the bill next day minus a tip causing Ingles to issue another tweet, " Tues: Jane Adams, star of HBO series "Hung" skipped out on a $13,44 check. Her agent calle and paid the following day, NO TIP1!!". Adams did return to the restaurant to tip Ingles a month later, but it was too late. Barney's Corporate saw Ingles Twitter account and encouraged his manager to fire him after five years of employment. *-- Student Lost Employment After After Negative Tweet About The Job:- In March 2009, Connor Riley had a job offer from Cisco on the table. Unfortunately, Riley's master's degree in information management and systems at University of California Berkeley did not prevent her from mismanaging her own information on Twitter. She tweeted, " Cisco just offered me a job! Now I have to weigh the utility of fatty pay check against the daily commute to San Jose and hating the work."
Shortly thereafter, there was reply from Cisco employee Tim Levard offering to pass her sentiments along to hiring manager. Obviously, Riley lost the job before it even started.
