Axed HMVers hijack official Twitter stream

Axed HMV workers hijacked the music retailer’s Twitter stream to tell the world of a mass execution taking place at HQ.

A fortnight ago HMV — an abbreviation of His Master’s Voice — called in the administrators when bosses realised they were likely to miss banking covenants at the end of January.

Deloitte was brought on board to seek a way forward for the ailing biz but confirmed yesterday it was slashing 190 jobs from HMV’s head office and the distribution network.

But amusingly a running commentary on developments at corp HQ was provided by staffers who had seized control of HMV’s official Twitter feed.

There are over 60 of us being fired at once! Mass execution, of loyal employees who love the brand. #hmvXFactorFiring, the staffer said.

We’re tweeting live from HR where we’re all being fired, it added — via redwolf.newsvine.com
