We all know that social media has a HUGE impact on our every day lives. What you may think is a simple joke, could cost you your job. Just ask former school district employer, Katie Nash, what happened when she corrected a student’s spelling on Twitter.
Katie Nash was the social media manager for Frederick County Public Schools. Earlier this month, a student had replied to @FCPSMaryland about school being closed “tammarow,”. From the school’s district account, she replied, “but then how would you learn how to spell ‘tomorrow’? :)”
Since then, the tweet has been deleted and she was terminated.
“It happened really quickly. They handed me a letter and then asked for my badge and ID,” Nash tells The New York Daily News.
Twitter users and students have come to her defense using #FreeKatie and #KatiefromFCPS
From her personal account, she issued a statement via Twitter.
“Wish success for FCPS, students deserve the best. Don’t regret a tweet. #katiefrom FCPS says do ur homewurk – no one takes away ur education.”
