    I don’t feel sorry for Adam Orth in the slightest. When you sign a contract with a company — especially one in the tech industry — you are given explicit social networking and media policy guidelines and reminded of them on a regular basis. You are told that you are never to speak directly about your company, on behalf of your company, or about any of your customers and clients. Your personal communications (twitter, blogs, facebook, interviews, appearances on podcasts, etc) are also weighed against you.

    In other words, any professional in the tech industry in this day and age knows unequivocally that anything and everything you say under your real name (and sometimes not under your real name) will potentially impact your current employment and future employability.

    I am a nobody in my company, by and large, and even I no longer write content online. No blog, no website articles, no twitter posts, no facebook. Nothing. Because I care about my employment. Period.

    He knew this. He didn’t care. HIS PROBLEM.

    In his position, joking or not he should have never been on twitter saying what he said but I do feel bad for any man that loses his job. We all make mistakes its unfortunate that his mistake possibily ruined his career

    Been listening in for years, and I just wanted to tell you all to keep up the fantastic work!

    As for the Orth comments, it’s always a shame to see someone lose their job over a tweet that was probably taken in the wrong context, but that’s the reality of the world we live in now.

    I believe we really have to start training people on how to appropriately use social media. As much as people believe in freedom of speech, using your words on a social site make them public, meaning that if you represent a major company, you can and should expect them to be picked up by media outlets. Another issue revolves around not being able to properly convey your message in 140 characters or the context in which you meant certain remarks. While he could have been joking, your comments on such channels are taken at face value and how others envision them. It’s just like harassment – it’s not how you meant it, but how it comes across. In this case, I feel like Orth, while incredibly talented, comes off as disingenuous and unaware of his audience.

    On something like Twitter, it’s not only about relaying a message to those who YOU follow, but also being aware of who all follows YOU in return. In the future, it’s just smart business to realize who you’re talking to and who you represent.
