Fired from Job over Twitter
@Cella, who had been hired as a cashier at Jet’s pizza was fired over Twitter when her manager was shown her tweet in which she had expressed her dismay to work at the eatery. She wrote: “Ew, I start this f*** a** job tomorrow” with a line of thumbs down emojis.
A staff member found her tweet, took a screen shot and forwarded it to her to be manager, Robert Waple.
Mr. Waple replied the next day to @Cella’s tweet by writing: No you don’t start that FA job today! I just fired you! Good luck with your no money, no job life!”

After Cella tweeted that she had been fired on Twitter, the exchange quickly went viral, reaching Venezuela, Argentina, Peru and Indonesia where people have shown their support for her through their tweets.

She says she is not upset about being fired and instead sent Mr.Waple a cartoon of herself.
This is perhaps the most informal communication to be witnessed between an employee and an employer till this date.
