Big photos, tweets below.
The story of teacher Carly "Crunk Bear" McKinney, who is "no longer employed" after a suspension for racy tweets, proved people can lose their jobs because of social-media posts. But that hasn't stopped Twitter users from playing with getting fired, as proven by Fire Me!, a site that sorts potentially career-ending tweets under four categories -- "Horrible Bosses," "Potential Killers," "Haters" and "Sexual Intercourse." See photo-illustrated examples from each, plus the tweets on the all-time leaderboard, and decide for yourself how long these people will be getting a paycheck.

People will eventually realize that using real names for facebook accounts or any other social media is career suicide.

Unless you're a boring mindless square.

Thats a bit like asking if an employer has a right to fire someone that does something stupid. Answer would be yes

" Your oldest college girl gives better 'head' than your wife ! "

" Like you didn't know ......... "

That would probably do it, unless you were Simon 'tweeting' Garfunkle ..

Sick of hearing the "employed" whine ... PERIOD. The boss may stink, but working with a whiner smells worse. I'm sure companys' opinions of whining and "Tweeters" would warrant a pink slip or two.

Only if they're on company time when they do it... although, anymore, even an empty threat for wanting to kill the boss should warrant a call to the popo!

More people should STFU about stuff like their jobs. Get a helmet. Dennis Leary said it best.

If someone tweets about hating their job or boss then it becomes public information...so shouldn't be surprised if down the road you lose your job over that information..in this job market, I'm sure somebody would love to have that job you hate so much...

Even in the absence of a right, people need to have some common sense: make it a point to not tweet anything you wouldn't want your boss (or employer) to see--if you need to vent do so offline. If you tweet on company time about hating your boss, you're an idiot with no common sense and get what you deserve.

I don't think they have the "right" but that's not going to stop them from doing it. I've tried very hard to learn to keep my thoughts about my company off of social media.
