FireMe App Tracks Tweets From Employees Who Hate Their Boss

Dislike your boss? Better be careful how you express these feelings on Twitter, because your tweets could end up getting you fired. FireMe! a new web app from Germany tracks what people say about their bosses on the social networks. Bosses can use it to see what their employees are saying about them (though they can also just check Twitter pages directly if they suspect some ill tweets are going out about them from specific users).

Here is more from the site: “Our goal is to raise awareness about the danger of public online data.
Most people are not aware that, on the internet, once said, you can never take it back. All tweets shown here are publicly available on Twitter. So don’t blame us, instead get responsible.”

Worried about what you’ve tweeted? The app has a tool that will let you check your own Twitter account and will score your Twitter handle based on your tweets. (Via The Huffington Post).
