This Job Description Included Awkward Information And Now Twitter Is Concerned

Embarrassing copy and paste fails are sadly all too common. Like the time Scott Disick posted too much text from an email for a sponsored Instagram caption.

However not all copy and paste fails are created equal. Like this one job posting for Time Out New York that was posted on Indeed.com.  

In what looks like a personal email, the job posting included a bunch of details about employee Melissa Sinclair and her crazy workload. We don’t really know whoever or whatever is responsible for this mix-up but one thing is certain: You’ve probably never read a job description like this.

It seems that the poster immediately realized their mistake once the tweet started blowing up. Either that, or they filled the position?

People on Twitter weren’t just tickled pink by the embarrassing posting; they started feeling bad for the overworked Melissa.

Others pointed out how much of a nightmare it sounds like to manage the photo editing team at the mag.

While others dished out on just how under appreciated good photo-journalists are.

Someone pointed out the obvious though; if you’re the type of person who’s shown any aptitude at completing tasks, you’re an under appreciated individual, AKA, a Melissa.

Melissa needs more appreciation, people.

Someone's Trying To Edit Wikipedia And Erase This Problematic Information About The President

Joe Lieberman has solidly emerged as one of the front runners for the newly-vacant position of FBI Director. Considering his law firm has a lengthy history of representing Donald Trump, many people think there’s a conflict of interests there.

Not this person, though. 

That potential conflict of interests might be behind the Wiki-War that’s been happening on the law firms page. Someone keeps trying to remove all references to Donald Trump. Reporter Lachlan Markay posted the edit history for their page on his social media, pointing out where Trump was removed from a list of notable clients.

Curious, Markay went on to check the IP address that made the changes to see if they’d made any other edits. It turns out, they had. The user removed Trump’s name from that client list several times because admins kept putting it back. The user also adjusted the Wikipedia entry for Trump advisor Stephen Miller and the entry for Trump’s State of the Union address. Both edits were pro-Trump.

When you look up the location for that IP address, it happens to land you very near to the address for a Trump delegate in Alabama.

The map of the IP location is on the left, the delegate address on the right.

Twitter user @KateInVenice pointed out that the Wikipedia page wasn’t the only place Donald Trump’s name disappeared from. Trump’s name is now missing from the law firms website as well, specifically from Joe Lieberman and Marc Kasowitz’s attorney profile pages.

It went from being listed first to not existing at all. 

People don’t seem too impressed by how obvious these changes have been.

Jokes were made at Trump’s expense pretty quickly.

Wikipedia has since locked the law firm page so that it can no longer be changed. It remains to be seen whether the edits on their website will be reversed.
