evie profileRemember "The Birds"?

As a child I loved and hated that film. It scared me. It almost scarred me. 

Flocks of birds attacking people. Sounds innocent enough, really. But there were lots of them and they would peck you to death. In black and white.

Twitter's flock is growing by the day and I'm thankful, and sometimes a little surprised, to see how many people follow my occasional ramblings in 140 characters or less. And, as the gesture invites, I often follow people back. It seems like the polite thing to do. But I'm often wary of the people that have either no profile or a very limited one.

Last week I was followed by Evie Johnson. Evie describes herself as a Freelancer & Social Media Manager. But her last active tweet was back in June.

twitter mistakeBack in February I wrote about @Cellla_ and @Robertwaple - a girl (Cellla) who sent out a tweet about the job she was about to start, and the pizza restaurant manager (Robert) who sacked her before she even started.

At the time I called it a Lose Lose in 140 Characters or less. 

Now that the dust has had time to settle it felt like the right time to go back and see what the aftermath looked like - and it's interesting.

In a world where we share and like almost anything on a whim, we forget that once we "put it out there" it may, like some strange new mutation, suddenly have a heartbeat, and then a whole life of its own which is out of our control like an unruly teenager.

@Cella_ was probably ill advised to post this tweet just a day before she started a new job at Jet Pizza "Ew I start this f*ck *ss job tomorrow" with a row of thumbs down..... Let's think for a moment why she might have tweeted this is the first place. Let's face it, working at a pizza joint is not a particularly glamorous job. I get that. Maybe she was putting the job down so as not to be thought as someone who might apsire to working on a pizza joint. Who knows. In any event, I'm sure she did not expect the reaction from the Jet Pizza manager.
