How are you going to tell potential employers in your interviews that you were let go because you posted a tweet on the company account instead of your personal account about your opinion of how terrible the new Star Wars movie is going to be. Perhaps you called in sick to go to a local sporting event and bumped into your boss or was shown on TV. This list of crazy reasons why people have been fired is endless.
