LONDON - An employee apparently fired from music retailer HMV let loose on the company's Twitter feed, comparing ongoing layoffs to a "mass execution."
The rogue messages - which immediately attracted media attention - started with a missive saying "we're tweeting live from HR where we're all being fired! Exciting!!"
The person's identity wasn't clear but Twitter messages came from the company's verified account, suggesting that an employee was responsible. The message was later removed.
HMV, Britain's last big music retailer, entered a form of bankruptcy protection earlier this month.
