"I went for a job interview last week at Zenith Bank. One woman from HR walked in and showed me this my tweet from 2020."
He quoted a tweet that called the bank the most useless bank in Africa.
According to him, he has learned his lesson.
Many tweeps scolded the man for saying something like that and went to the same bank searching for a job.
"We keep telling them," one person responded.
Another said the banks due their due diligence before employing anybody.
"It happens... They do their due diligence before You're employed. Even Embassies and the like do it too.
Just be careful what you say online. Or it will be used against one in the nearest future,".
Others said banks engage consultants who stalk social media to look for trolls or anything negative about them.
"She doesn't have to do it herself, the company can engage a consultant to do social media profiling of the candidates or their IT department can be tasked with that. The dynamics are not what they used to be," yet another person responded.
Princess Akporaro said:
"Zenith is responsible for finding out why he tweeted and hiring him to help solve the problem. I will speak my mind anytime and day without fear because "someone is watching."
