A lucky job applicant tweeted the following:
“Cisco just offered me a job! Now I have to weigh the utility of a fatty paycheck against the daily commute to San Jose and hating the work.”
This tweet caught the attention of Tim Levad, a channel partner advocate for Cisco. To which he responded:
“Who is the hiring manager. I’m sure they would love to know that you will hate the work. We here at Cisco are versed in the web.”
Ouch! The person who dissed the Cisco offer quickly took their Twitter account private. But Twitter search retained the record.
You kids better be careful out there on the Interwebs.
I’m watching my mouth here.
Update: No sooner did we post this entry, did we see the Arkansas Times’ note on the resignation of Batesville Chamber of Commerce Director Jonah Shumate. This, after he posted some pointed political views to the chamber’s official Twitter account, which, according to our Arkansas Twitter Guide, was located here. It has of course been taken down.
Apparently, some Democratic members of the chamber learned of the Republican-leaning posts. After a meeting on the matter last night, Shumate resigned, according to the Times.
Shumate began at the chamber in 2007. He was apparently one of the youngest ever to hold the position. Them kids and their Twitters!
