Man fails to recommend friend for 'something' because his tweets were offensive

According to Namushi‏ @ThaNewMe, a 'supposed' friend of his was shortlisted for 'something' and although his input was asked for, he failed to make the recommendation and the name was dropped. Why? Namushi indicated that the person he was talking about said something offensive on social networking platform, Twitter, and he couldn't bring himself to recommend him.

'Mind your tweets guys, your network is your net worth. You can go ahead and tweet like there would be no consequences attached,' he said.

This has raised a debate, with few people in support of his action, while others are totally against it. Over to you LIB readers, what do you all think? See more of his tweets below.

This is one of the reasons I wake up each day thanking God for not being man.
Imagine if God should mark his guilt, will he be alive to stop someone from getting a job.
Again selecting someone for a job is based on professionalism and not their disposition on twitter.

All she is saying is be matured and don't just tweet because it's easy to do so... Think of the emotional damages, think of what u could insite, think of how u will feel if u meet the law or the subject of your tweets. Let's have time to edit our thoughts bf penin it down

Namuchi sounds like he knows and sure of what he's doing... recommendation is bases on trust; let's not forget that he also advised his friend to also upgrade his self.

If you don't trust someone enough for a job you can hardly recommend especially if it involves money transactions or jobs with financial institutions; u might also be saving your own image.

But if it is because he has no confidence in his friend's competence then he's a hater and not worthy of friendship.

In any case, I can only recommend my trusted friends for any job because these day some people can actually frag u down for helping them. Just my opinion.

He/she did well. A lot of Nigerians are silly and just act entitled. He/she has done nothing wrong by failing to recommend the person for the job. It's his/her reputation that would have been on the line. Only vouch for what/who you can vouch for.

Even some companies check your social media updates, before employments, that's why we are advised to watch what we post online. No be God matter be this unugo? Leave sin n no sin. The purpose for social media is being use wrongly by some people.

Just like I wouldn't recommend any Homophobic Bigot, Gay people Hater for any job or leadership position. The way you treats gays tells us a lot about you. What good are you if you are not empathetic? or treat others not like you as trash? Hello Bonario!

@bonario you are right. But sometimes if your time line depict a personality that cannot handle a designated job. For example, your time line shows anger, quick irrational responses, et al. And the designated job on ground as to do with customer care, or a diplomatic international relation. How will u employ or recommend such?

If per chance, it's a graphic designer or any other desk job that will not warrant a slight outburst that might cost the organization lot then.....

Like Bonario said, selection is based on professionalism.
If she's honest with herself, why won't she write what the person twitted.
No conditions is permanent, that person might become her boss tomorrow.

It's a reputation that matters.... A lot of people hv been made to pay for their brothers sins simply because they recommend someone for a job

@Bonarionaggs im sorry but i dont agree with you. There is no professional you and social media you. If you are a certain way no matter the professional, you will be you. For example a racist doctor will bring prejudice when he is handling a black person for sure. If you saw your wife's doctor commenting on social media that black people are pigs, dogs monkey's etc would you still be comfortable with him handing your wife's surgery? i guessing no will be your answer. Also we do not know in what capacity this person she rejected was being referenced for so i cannot blame her especially when you are also not aware of her own position and the implication referring someone with a conflicting views than hers. She may have future ambitions of working is some type of office and this friends silly talk may just affect her chances.
