    Can you get the sack over having a 'rud twitter or Facebook account? Like not necessarily pictures of you out partying every night, just swearing etc. Or can you only be disciplined if you talk badly of the company? I think it's so stupid and personal life shouldn't affect your career.

    Why wouldnt your personal life affect your career? Unless you want to be employed as a mindless robot, your employer will be employing you as a person and your personal life with influence that.
