1/21. Didn't lose my job, but I watched a friend lose his over a tweet. He tweeted "So getting head while delivering pizzas is pretty sweet" one night while he was working. The next morning he tweeted "YO PAPA JOHNS I don't need you or your stupid job anyway" or something to that effect. I've never laughed so hard in my life.
2/21. I posted a blog post on MySpace in 2005 that got me discharged from the Army. I indicated I had romantic feelings for a female and that I had acted on those feelings (I am also female). My sergeant suspected I was involved with this woman so she looked me up on MySpace, saw the blog post, and 3 months later, I was discharged for "homosexual conduct."
3/21. I posted my facebook status about how big of a jerk my boss is...... and tagged him.
4/21. My female friend (18) was DM'd through twitter by the news presenter (37) of our city. He was talking about her beach pictures and how she is really pretty and how they need to get together. She ended up telling him that it's pretty ridiculous that he's trying to get with her. He lost his job later that week. The only real reason he lost his job was because he used the weather channels twitter account.
5/21. I had to fire someone for one. He was a volunteer firefighter and left for a call which I allowed.
