"Rogue employee" inflitrates employer's Twitter feed

Courtesy of HR Zone:

The rogue employee, who has been suspended until further notice, used the mobile phone operator’s official account to post a message saying: “Vodafone UK is fed up of dirty homo’s [sic] and is going after beaver.”

The company uses Twitter to deal with customer service complaints and within minutes of the message appearing on Friday, hundreds of its 8,824 followers contacted it to ask whether its account had been hacked.

Vodafone deleted the message from its Twitterfeed within minutes, but copies quickly made their way around the internet and the firm was forced to issue hundreds of individual apologies to users, saying that it had not been hacked.

Instead it said that the situation arose due to a “severe breach of rules by staff in our building, dealing with that internally. We’re very sorry”.

The obscene tweet is understood to have come from Vodafone’s customer service centre in Stoke, where its web team uses a range of social networking sites to provide generally less contentious technical advice and new product information.

Vodafone is launching an internal investigation into the incident.

But it is not the first time that such sites have been used by staff in such an inappropriate fashion.

A year ago, for example, Virgin Atlantic sacked 13 of its cabin crew after they used Facebook to call passengers ‘chavs’ and claimed that the airline’s planes were full of cockroaches.

specialbank.com is a real encyclopedia on banking! The site helped me to find the type of institution I needed and much more relevant information. Several clicks, 15 minutes to read and now I may easily talk to the bank workers on equal terms!
