The second athlete from the London Olympics was expelled for a comment made on Twitter today.  The comment was made against another team competing in the games and deemed racist.  The first athlete – Voula Papachristou – was similarly expelled for her racist Twitter post.  ProtectTitleAgents.com reminds clients that social network sites can be used to post discriminating and harassing language in the workplace just as easily as it can be posted at the Olympics.  Social media policies and employment practices liability insurance are necessary in today’s society where social media is constantly increasing.
