A reality of modern life is that if you’re looking for a job, you should probably make sure your social media feeds are as sparkly clean as can be. Anyone who’s watched the news recently has almost certainly seen a story about a firing or just a public shaming over a years old tweet. So prospective employees, make sure there’s nothing incriminating tied to your online presence.
Future NBA players, that goes for you too.
Keldon Johnson and Tyler Herro have both already made sure there’s nothing for trolls to dig up from their internet pasts, according to a new report by the Herald Leader.
“I don’t have that many posts,” Keldon Johnson said. “I only have Instagram. I only have about five or six posts. I know there’s nothing up there that’s bad. So I’m fine.”
Likewise, Tyler Herro said a pre-Combine review meant his postings would pose no problem.
“I had someone do that for me,” he said. “I didn’t know what was deleted. I just know my Twitter is clean now.”
Wait, is combing through future pro athletes social media posts a viable business? Herro sure made it sound like a professional handled his.
I might just have to invest.
