A man named Sunith Baherrathan wanted to buy some weed. It happens. Sunith’s mistake was that he used his Twitter account to find the weed.
Soon after Sunith posted the tweet, a nearby police station asked if they could come too. They probably can’t. Sunity tried to correct the decision, proclaiming that him asking Twitter for drugs to buy was a joke and that people, “really gotta stop taking sweets serious Lmao”.
I don’t think Sunith was joking. I think Sunith would have very much bought weed if someone had messaged him back. At least he didn’t say his account was hacked. Side rant: I hate it when people claim their Twitters were hacked, and that’s why they said a bunch of drunken, racist garbage. Yes, accounts do get hacked all the time. But when accounts are hacked, the hacker doesn’t post oddly specific offensive stuff. He uses the account to offer all your friends a free PS3.
Anyways, even after Sunith attempted to backtrack on his weed buying Tweet, things still fell apart. Sunith’s boss at Mr. Lube saw the Tweet and fired the kid. It probably didn’t help that Sunith’s boss had a son who was probably able to translate the Tweet to his dad. Sunith didn’t just want to buy weed. He wanted to buy weed so he could be stoned at work.
The lesson, yet again: when you write things on Twitter, understand that everyone can read it. That’s kind of the point of Twitter.
