The Tavern Chat Podcast - Episode #51 - ArenaNet Fires two Devs for Dissing Customers

Timely News - ArenaNet fires two developers for getting into a pissing match with customers via Twitter on July 4th. Employees are accountable for their social media feed and interactions.

  1. Jessica Price was also involved in the Frank Mentzer situation. Small world.

    1. the story in my eyes is less her and more the fact that a company held its employees to a standard of conduct.

  3. You mean a game company, I assume. Many companies have fired tons of employees over social media missteps. That's pretty common. Personally, I wouldn't have cared if it wasn't Jessica Price.
