    So the guy made a joke in private about something stupid, some lady wasn't minding her own business, and she posts on twitter and puts his name and picture out there.

    He gets fired and kicked from the tech conference. For making a freaking joke in private(joking about forking repos in a "sexual" way... right..; not attacking anyone or anything or insulting anyone.


    Send Grid fires Adria Richards, and rightly so. She got the poor guy fired for no reason whatsoever other than the fact that she libel'ed him on twitter.


    Justice was somewhat served. The guy still doesn't have his job back.

    Can we get some twitter support for Send Grid for doing the right thing?

    And some twitter support for getting this family man hired back into his company?

    Let's do it BHW.

    Adria is such a hypocrite, she made such a joke on her twitter just a few days before the accident as well!

    Guys can we get some Twitter pros to help out?What this woman did taking advantage of the submissive techies in Silicon Valley is ridiculous. Considering we're all techies here, I'd expect an uproar from you guys.
