Cisco Fatty Incident
Connor Riley , a would have been - employee of Cisco wrote a tweet that got her fired before she even started the job. Connor tweeted, "Cisco just offered me a job! Now I have to weigh the utility of a fatty paycheck against the daily commute to San Jose and hating the work.". A channel partner advocate for Cisco Alert then tweeted her, "Who is the hiring manager. I’m sure they would love to know that you will hate the work. We here at Cisco are versed in the web.".
After this incident, Connor Riley was harassed on social media. She put her page on private and deleted her information.But even after that it was too late because her tweet had been shared everywhere.There is even a website called CiscoFatty.com. This will effect her ability to get jobs because of how publicly known she is for this dumb tweet. Jobs wouldn't want to be associated with that.
Immediacy's part in this story is how quick the tweet was able to upload and be exposed to the Twitter world. Even if she wanted to change her mind, it would be to late.
Permanance's part was even after Connor deleted the tweet it was everywhere. People had already shared the tweet .Now anyone can look up "Cisco Fatty incident" and articles and pictures of the tweet will pop up.
After Connor pressed "tweet", she lost control over who could see and what would happen to the tweet. Even the decision to post that was a example of lack of control. She didn't think before she wrote that.
My advice to Connor is next time think. If she would have thought before she post that, then maybe she wouldn't be viral for a stupid tweet. She should sat and thought, " Is this tweet really, worth my job?".
