Like Roseanne and others..are all people on social media just one tweet/retweet/post/photo/video/blog from the past, away from being fired? Very interesting article from market watch attached.

I agree. With cell phones recording you from every direction you have to be very careful what you say and do and if you did something in the past, your sunk.

Over a weekend, someone wrote “Not looking forward to Monday.”
Their employer questioned them and pulled them aside basically telling them to leave now if they hate working here. The employee said she was talking about her dog. She was having her dog put down Monday and wasn’t looking forward to it 🤭

I don’t use social media at all - except SOH. But I don’t tell people that I use this app either.

Same here..I never had a twitter account and deleted my Facebook account 8 years ago..SOH is all I have..I often wonder if people would actually say what they post if the person it’s directed at was in front of their face..🤷‍♀️

I often wonder too - especially when it gets into some of the more colorful language and name calling.

My coworkers and I always kept a low profile on social media because someone from the company was always watching....or so it seemed.

Well it depends on who you are and what you say. If your boss is liberal and you are liberal and you say something demeaning about conservatives or trump then you will probably keep your job. Same if you are conservative and bash liberals, if your boss is a conservative he will agree with the post and won't fire you since you spoke his truth. Now if your boss is of a different political view or doesn't agree with the post then yes you are just that 1 post away from being fired.

Depends what your controversial speech is and whether or not it agrees with the right people

Not if your a liberal, media, celebrity. You aren’t held to the same standards. Hypocrisy.

I️ am. But I️ don’t use social media so that’s not one of my concerns.

And I would have been instantly fired for that tweet....and unemployable moving forward.

I think peoples egos and late night habits get them to say the darnedest things. And that’s trouble. Don’t post pictures of your naked azz either.
