When Tweets Cost You A Job, Octavia Nasr Edition

Posted Jul 11, 2010

Octavia Nasr used to be the Senior Editor of Mideast Affairs for CNN. She is leaving the company after controversy stuck when she sent out the following tweet: “Sad to hear the passing of Sayyed Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah? One of Hezbollah’s giants I respect a lot.” Nasr admitted that she should not have left such a simple comment without any context whatsoever on the CNN blog. Nasr worked at CNN for 20 years.
