Chef Fired before Christmas, Uses Restaurant's Twitter to Get Tasty Revenge

When people accused him of hacking the companies Twitter account, he took to his personal Twitter handle to clear the air:



With so many stories like this around the holiday season, it's always good to see social media provide a little righteous justice.  If you want to follow Jim Knight's exploits you can do so here.
