Dozens of employees of HMV, the bankrupt British music retailer, have been fired. News of the layoffs was first leaked on Twitter, appearing on HMV's official Twitter account (@hmvtweets) by a rogue Tweeter. The posts, which have since been removed, gave a blow-by-blow account of what was happening as the employees were being let go.

The first of the tweets, reportedly posted by a disgruntled HMV employee who was among the casualties, appeared about 2:30 p.m. London time: "There are over 60 of us being fired at once! Mass execution, of loyal employees who love the brand."
