Greg Miller was let go from his position as co-ordinator with Niagara Region Transit after making anonymous comments on twitter and other social media platforms under the handle @NiagaraNext. The comments included critical opinions about regional representatives and other politicians. Greg said he created the account before he was hired and used it while employed. He told The Niagara Falls Review “My intention was to merely voice my opinion as a citizen living in Niagara.”
What has happened to freedom of speech in the age of social media? Does freedom of speech now come with a cost?
