Media Bistro’s 10,000 Words blog has a two-part story up about reporters who’ve gotten fired after Twitter no-no’s. A couple of my favorites:
- Australian reporter Catherine Deveny lost her columnist gig with The Age after tweeting, “I do so hope Bindi Irwin gets laid.” Bindi was 11 years old at the time
- Arizona reporter Brian Pedersen was sacked after complaining about his paper, other media outlets and crime issues in Tuscon via Twitter. Pedersen’s case went to the National Labor Relations Board, who sided with the paper.
