A Canadian man tweeted his way out of a job after trying to score a $20 bag of marijuana on Twitter.

The Toronto auto shop worker put out a request for some reefer on the social media outlet:

“Any dealers in Vaughan wanna make a 20sac chop? Come to Keele/Langstaff Mr. Lube, need a spliff,” tweeted the man using the Twitter handle @Sunith_DB8R.

Unfortunately for the user, the tech-savvy York Regional Police caught wind of the tweet and fired a response.

The police forwarded the man’s initial tweet to a member of the board of Mr. Lube, the auto shop.

The man then went on Twitter to try to defend himself with a series of tweets.

“Never knew weed smokers are more wanted in society than shooters & rapists. Big smh to all of y’all,” was his first tweet.

The user then went on to say he was joking about toking:

“People really think I’m serious with my tweets? MANNNNNNNN.”

Eventually, the guilt set in, and he just looked for some compassion from the Twitterverse:

“Can’t lie, stupid move but would y’all have noticed that tweet if YRP didn’t retweet it?”

Keeping it on Twitter, the people at Mr. Lube fired a response from its official account:

The unfortunate tweeter eventually wrote “Just got the call of termination,” before cancelling his account. The handle has since been taken over by someone else.

Don’t go around over-sharing on Twitter, it could cost you your job!
