Dear Jane: If I Can't Tweet, I Quit!

Dear JaneDear Jane,

My firm has just promulgated a policy that restricts my use of social media. I’m furious and thinking about leaving.


I Have a Right to Tweet


Dear I Have a Right to Tweet,

Why does the new policy hit you so wrong?  Have you communicated your rational objections in a professional way to a decision maker?  It is quite possible that the new policy is an overreaction to one person’s lack of judgement, but you’ll never know if your reaction is to vote with your feet.  I’d encourage you to engage in a rational dialogue before making your decision.
