Vodafone UK’s Twitter feed has been compromised by an employee who sent out an offensive message to its 8,663 followers.
According to Vodafone, the employee breached its rules by posting an offensive message though the company’s profile.
The message, which read “Is fed up of dirty homo’s and is going after beaver”, was posted at 3.47pm today and the telecoms giant has since been apologising individually to followers who have responded to the post.
A spokesman for Vodafone said, “It was a severe breach of conduct by staff but we apologise to followers. They will hopefully keep faith and carry on following us.”
Vodafone also confirmed that the member of staff involved had been suspended.
