HMV worker takes over official Twitter during sackings

HMV official Twitter turned against itself.

The Guardian is reporting how a worker at HMV's HR department (allegedly Poppy Rose) briefly hijacked (a term she contests on her Twitter page as she was meant to be in charge of HMW Twitter at the time) the official company Twitter this afternoon to report on goings on at the office and protest against mass sackings as the company goes into administration.

Pretty funny stuff.

Elsewhere, people have been nicking things from HMV, and some workers have occupied their stores for redundancy pay:

Workers from 3 out of the 4 stores that staged sit-ins got paid!
