HMV staff members hijack company's Twitter and run riot: read the now-deleted Tweets inside

Employees of HMV have gained control of the company’s Twitter, tweeting the process of being fired.

The tweets have now been deleted, but as is always the case these days, they’ve been documented forever via a series of screen grabs [via Gigwise]- good thing, too, as the incident’s popularity appears to have sent Twitter’s website down.

It was announced earlier this year that HMV was to go into administration, though subsequent developments appear positive for the future of the brand. More than you can say about these Tweets, then. Update: Two more cris de coeur, not included in the original screen grab, have been added below, one of which presages the subsequent deletion of all the offending tweets.
