Cisco Fatty a sad but true Twitter tale

From the ‘Twitter knows all’ files:

Cisco CEO John Chambers recently announced that Cisco would have some staff reductions, but apparently they are still doing some hiring — or at least trying too until Twitter interfered.

A prospective Cisco hire (@theconnor who has now protected his updates, but Twitter search is still there..) tweeted:

Cisco just offered me a job! Now I have to weigh the utility of a fatty
paycheck against the daily commute to San Jose and hating the work.

Cisco of course, is social media aware and they noticed the tweet and responded with a tweet of their own (by Cisco channel partner advocate Tim Levad).

Who is the hiring manager. I’m sure they would love to know that you will hate the work. We here at Cisco are versed in the web.

The final outcome of the this little tweet exchange isn’t fully known just yet but Levad does offer some advice (in a tweet of course):

Lots of new followers today. I wonder why. Be carefull what you say, and have a great day.

Sage advice indeed, but also common sense that some people obviously just don’t have.
