Julie Posetti writes up a bit of groggate on The Drum.
" They claimed that a reporter on The Australian had telephoned their
employers, asking for action to be taken against employees for comments
(some using very strong language) directed at James Massola via Twitter.
One of those allegedly targeted - an employee of a large corporation who
asked to remain anonymous - told me:
"(He) contacted someone at my work to complain that I was being
unpleasant... on Twitter. My work stated that employees were free to
speak their minds on their own time. It did however leave me with a
sense of caution - no-one likes having their employment threatened by a
major newspaper's employee merely for expressing an opinion."
