The Social Media Company that Laid Me Off Yesterday Hasn't Removed me from the Company Twitter Account
Have been chatting on Facebook tonight with one of my former coworkers. She learned that she was laid off via Facebook because she was home sick yesterday and saw some posts. The guys we worked for never bothered to tell her.
She did say they locked her out of her work e-mail, but has access to dozens of client Facebook pages. When she told me that I checked a few things and discovered that I still have access to the company's Twitter page as well as client Facebook pages as well.
I went in and changed the e-mail and password on the Twitter account just to make them nervous.
We could do some serious damage and have been discussing things we could do that involves lots of porn being posted.
She still has to go in tomorrow and get her stuff. I'm finding the whole situation rather amusing.
Here's hoping you do something clever and extremely annoying.
You still had the money to post this? What kind of work did you do?
Do it, OP. Fuck them over with cleverness and élan.

Are you an ex Zynga employee?
do it!! make it splashy enough for coverage in the SMM blogs
That is ironic, a tech company thinks the only thing they need to control is email.
They get what they deserve. Do it OP.
Something funny and embarrassing for them. Ideally something they actually did so they are left holding the bag explaining what they did instead of shifting the attract on to the poster.
Of course there is nothing wrong with giving out the CEOs personal phone number or having an open bar party for the first 200 people that show up at the office.
Yet you won't post the Twitter here?
I'd be cautious.... although tempted. Do you really need to be without a job and facing a potential lawsuit or even criminal prosecution. You clearly do not have the authority to continue to use their accounts. You yourself make it clear that you realize it was a mistake. At best they will black ball you -- you'll get absolutely no reference from them. Wouldn't you think it preferable to be able to list this job on your resume so you can get another job? At worst, they could sue you for tortious interference with their business and depending on what you post, could get the authorities involved. I'd resist the temptation if I was you. Two wrongs don't make a right.
R9 = Pussy.
They cant and wont sue you for anything. They have no grounds unless they could prove it caused them actual serious damage.
And if it's the truth about something they want kept secret, they are even more screwed. You cannot sue for slander if its true.
I am guessing you are probably not getting a good reference from them anyway.
Really even if you made something up totally outrageous and they tried to bring it to court it would be laughable. Try telling a judge that a tweet brought down you whole business. There is still something called freedom of speech in this country. Just happens to be on an old twitter account.
Put cat poop in the pockets of all of their pants and then hide the butter knives.
