#HMV: “We’re All Being Fired. Exciting!!”
@hmvtweets: A HMV UK staffer irked at the decision to fire 190 employees, took to the social network to articulate their anger at the “mass execution”.
The music store went into administration last month.
“We’re tweeting live from HR. We’re all being fired! Exciting!!” one HMV staffer wrote on @hmvtweets, the official company Twitter account yesterday.
“There are over 60 of us being fired at once! Mass execution of loyal employees who love the brand.”
‘Just overheard our Marketing Director (he’s staying, folks) ask “How do I shut down Twitter” the HMV staffer tweeted later on.
However, the cheeky tweets mysteriously disappeared from the official HMV Twitter account and is currently nowhere to be seen.
@ hmvtweets wrote the following in a bid to cover up the embarrassing PR gaffe.
“One of our departing colleagues was understandably upset. We’re still here thou, thx for supporting hmv thro these challenging times”
