Vodafone tosses out idiot tweeter

No more beavering for you

Vodafone's Twitter-based stupidity on Friday was down to an unguarded terminal, it transpires, and the employee concerned is now kicking his heels at home.

The tweet in question emanated from Vodafone UK's Stoke-based web team, but it wasn't one of that team who claimed to be "fed up of dirty homo's, going after some beaver". Apparently someone else stumbled across access to the Twitter feed and took advantage to share his plans for the weekend.

We reported the tweet on Friday, though Reg readers seems more concerned with the uncouth gentleman's lack of proper spelling and punctuation than his pungent opinion of the gay community.

Vodafone has been spending the weekend apologising to just about everyone, and the employee concerned has been suspended. The web team will no doubt be reviewing their office security procedures. ®
