1. Twitter is simply swarming with users who gripe about their lives, friends, celebrities and jobs. Heck, some even make great money doing it — safely, from behind the veil of an anonymous account.

    In 2015, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out how "public" tweets can be (even when they're "private,") how fast they're able to spread (even if you've only got 10 followers,) or how long they'll stick around (even after they've been deleted.)

    And yet, new stories of people who've tweeted themselves into trouble emerge nearly every week. From world leaders to snarky teens, the problem isn't confined to any one demographic.

    This week's viral Twitter blunder story involves a member of the latter group mentioned in the paragraph above; a teen girl from Texas whose profane tweet about starting a new job got her fired — before she'd even walked in the door.
  2. The tweet seen above was published by a young woman known only to the media as "Cella" — the name stated on her Twitter profile — Friday evening.

    Cella, who had just taken a job at the Jet's Pizza in Mansfield, Tx. (reluctantly, it seems,) had been slated to start working at the pizza parlour on Saturday.

    That changed instantly, however, when the man who'd hired Cella became aware of how she felt ( *thumbs down*) about her "f*** a***" new job.

    Jet's Pizza franchise owner Robert Waple took to his seldom-used Twitter account to inform Cella that her problems had been solved. She didn't need to work on Saturday after all!

    "And...no you don't start that FA job today! I just fired you! Good luck with your no money, no job life!" he tweeted at the young woman before her shift started.
  3. Waple's Twitter account has since been wiped of all tweets, but screenshots posted around the web reveal that the pizza shop boss had been sent a photo of Cella's tweet by one of her new, (almost) co-workers.

    During his brief "stirring up drama on Twitter" spree, Waple also said this to another user who had asked what Cella would have been doing at Jet's pizza if she hadn't been fired:

    "Working register, taking phone orders, making subs/salads. Eating free pizza. How hard would that have been?" Waple replied.

    A few hours later, Cella finally responded to Waple's tweet — with an image of the pink shirt emoji girl appearing to make it rain cash.
  4. Then, she publicly laugh-cried it off.
  5. Because the internet simply adores this kind of story, Cella's tweets spread fast and far, garnering the young woman attention from media outlets around the world.

    The North Texas teen seems to be quite happy with her newfound (albeit most-definitely fleeting) notoriety, as evidenced by her Twitter feed — which is now filled with thousands of retweets mentioning her digital blunder.
  6. A few of Twitter's teens have even reported studying Cella's case in school this week:
  7. Naturally, there are many around the web who are chastising Cella for a) tweeting her way out of a job, and b) Bragging about cheating her way out of a job, but we're betting you can guess most of what those people said.

    Will Cella's story prompt some teens to think more carefully about what they publish online, or will the fact that she's gaining an international audience for being fired over Twitter just encourage some to follow suit? Likely, a bit of both — though only time will tell.
