Tweets That Might Get You Fired

Some of these made me laugh (via FastCompany). I assume they’re real. If I had more time I’d perform a similar exercise, searching online for tweets that might get one of my students an F.

As ResumeBear reminds its readers:

It may not seem important to you now, but what you post and share online could come back to haunt you someday when you least expect it.  Everything on the internet can be archived, which means it is also searchable. Your online profiles might be just for friends now, but later on, your online content might keep you from getting that scholarship, the job of your dreams or even prevent you from running for public office.

Think before you post — especially before you post to social networking sites or blogs.

Wait a minute, I blog, don’t I?

    Doing a google on yourself can be revealing. Someone who indulged in ferocious name calling in on-line polemics and commentary found dozens of potentially actionable statements by himself floating in cyberspace. He immediately cleaned up his act.

    Of course nobody on this list would have anything to worry about.

    The question, Peter, is whether you think as well. (I assume you do!)

    I’m not sure there is a more easily googled name than “grammich.” That has advantages and disadvantages . . .
