Are Emily has been placed on leave, apparently she sent unsolicited nudes of herself to a WhatsApp group. £20k for a student union job? Talk about money for old rope.

This. It's the inevitable consequence of what happens when the bubble you're living in comes into contact with the real world.

If you haven't realised by the age of 20 that it isn't wise to post something inflammatory a couple of weeks before armistice Day from a work related Twitter account then there isn't much hope for you. Oh well, I'm sure the daughter of millionaires will somehow manage to cope.

The greater irony of all this is that it's this kind of reaction to stepping out of line over Poppy-geddon day that has people buying White Poppies and looking sideways at the British Legion, which causes further hysterical keyboard smashing from the kind of people who are upset about this story.

The suggestion that it's okay to rip into someone's entire life because they were grossly wrong about something is fucking horrendous, far more so than anything she posted. If this sort of thing continues to be deemed an appropriate response to dissent then we might as well adopt China's Social Credit System and be done with the pretense. "You were ignorant about the First World War several weeks prior to Armistice Day? Enjoy perpetual unemployment and we'll be emailing these nude photos you took to your dad for the next 18 months."

Oh, this old chestnut, the idea that if my opposite thinks something is fine, I don't care if something like that happens to them. If that's where your standards lie then why care in the first place? You clearly concede you have no ethics or morals of your own.

It's an official communication channel of an organisation, and she's used it to post personal views.
Any employer can class that as gross misconduct now, and they would have classed it as gross misconduct twenty years ago.

This is the problem with Twitter, it's so instantaneous that anyone can post something to a company or organisations twitter account with no chance for either themselves or another staff member to have a second thought.

See also, Thameslink mentioning poundland in a derogatory way in a really poor attempt at a joke.
Years ago this would never have happened, in 2018 you've got some incompetent kid with a media studies degree thrust into the position of writing communications with the company name at the top which could be seen by millions.

To be fair this isn't just incompetence, it's also often conscious strategy.
See: All the big fast-food chains trying to make their twitter accounts into characters. So Wendy's does sassy replies, Burger King and Pizza Hut fight, and whatever. It's all very unprofessional and ugly and stupid but it makes for effective advertising by keeping those companies on people's minds. For all those reasons I think we should stone the people who came up with it.

No. This isn't justice, this is mobbing. It wasn't right that it happened to Justine Sacco, to Quinn Norton, Kevin Williams, Bari Weiss or Roseanne Barr or any of the multitude of people a few minutes googling will turn up and it's not right that it's happening to her.

we're doing it here so it's irrelevant, but everyone on twitter feels the need go go and repeat what's already been said, even though it adds nothing.

all it would've taken is one person on twitter calling her a cunt, but no, now half the readership of the daily mail feels the need to hurl that insight at her which is far out of proportion to what she actually did, unless we're going to hound everyone who mouths off on twitter. (if we're gonna do that we should pay people, that'd get rid of unemployment in one quick piece of legislation.)

It's a bit bollocks when a national newspaper is directing people to give a student heat, something they know will happen and do regardless.
>but she's a representative, that makes her fair game!
she's the kind of representative parish councillors call a nonentity. it's still the most popular newspaper in the UK bullying a random student and nudging others to do likewise.

What did she 'dish out' exactly? You make it sound like she was attacking someone and can't handle the return fire, when in reality she made a political statement and is getting personal abuse for it. That's very much not the same thing.

It was a fucking stupid idea she had and it's utterly tedious, but the response certain corners of the internet are having to her is very embarrassing.

She said a stupid thing and as a result may end up psychologically scarred for years to come, as well as all the other fallout. It's not a small thing and I'm not being hyperbolic, it destroys lives and careers in an incredibly disproportionate manner. This is well documented.
