Business Insider has finally forced their CTO (Chief Technology Officer) to resign this week after once again we see how employees need to use caution when Tweeting. This time Pax Dickinson is Twitter’s latest victim after he blasted out a stream of anti-feminism tweets on Monday.
Business Insider had this to say about the issue:
A Business Insider executive has made some comments on Twitter that do not reflect our values and have no place at our company. The executive has left the company, effective immediately. Business Insider’s team is composed of more than 100 talented men and women of many backgrounds, and we highly value this diversity.
ValleyWag exposed more racist, misogynistic, homophobic etc. tweets from Pax Dickinson’s account. (Warning: Tweets contain very explicit and vulgar language.)
