Women on the verge of losing her NASA internship due to a Tweet

She tweeted some harsh words to a NASA council member

23 August, 2018 

An internship at NASA is an exceedingly pined for open door for understudies intrigued by a profession as a researcher or plane architect.

So when a lady discovered that she was offered an entry level position at the administration office in charge of missions like the Curiosity Mars meanderer, she naturally got exceptionally energized and declared the news in a tweet. Nothing strange for 2018, isn’t that so? There’s only one issue: she tweeted about her temporary position utilizing an interjection.

In the now-deleted tweet, a woman who goes by Naomi H on Twitter wrote, “EVERYONE SHUT THE FUCK UP I GOT ACCEPTED FOR A NASA INTERNSHIP,” NBC reported.

Homer Hickam, a previous NASA design and an individual from the National Space Council User Advisory Group, saw the tweet and answered “Language.” Naomi, likely ignorant of who Hickam was, instructed him to “Suck my d**** and balls.”

Various news outlets, including NBC, announced that Naomi lost the temporary job following this tweet trade. Evidently, the tweets were drawn out into the open after Naomi’s companions utilized a #NASA hashtag.

Homer Hickman threw light on this incident through a blog post that said:-

“Recently, it was called to my attention on Twitter that someone was being hired by NASA and that they were using the F-word in a tweet about it.

I’m a Vietnam vet and not at all offended by the F-word. However, when I saw NASA and the word used together, it occurred to me that this young person might get in trouble if NASA saw it so I tweeted to her one word: “Language” and intended to leave it at that.

Soon, her friends took umbrage and said a lot of unkind things but long after I was gone as I immediately deleted my comments and blocked all concerned.

Later, I learned she had lost her offer for an internship with NASA. This I had nothing to do with nor could I since I do not hire and fire at the agency or have any say on employment whatsoever.

As it turned out, it was due to the NASA hashtag her friends used that called the agency’s attention to it long after my comments were gone.”
