Posted: June 11, 2011

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - An economic-development agency employee who was fired over a Twitter post has hired a lawyer and wants her name cleared.

Social-media specialist Vanessa Williams was fired from the Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corp. after using its Twitter account June 3 to tweet: "We start summer hours today. That means most of the staff leave at noon, many to hit the links. Do you observe summer hours? What do you do?"
