NASA Intern Loses Job Over Vulgar Tweet


A NASA intern is apparently out of a job over a vulgar tweet.  According to Newsweek, the trouble started when a woman identified as Naomi H. unleashed a profanity-laced tweet about getting an internship at NASA.  Former NASA engineer Homer Hickam noticed the post and warned her the space agency might not appreciate the language.  She responded with an even more vulgar tweet and NASA pulled its offer.  In a post on his blog this week, Hickam said he took no offense and is now doing what he can to help her find some other position in the aerospace industry.
