Is this woman the biggest snitch on the internet?
Nobody like a grass, and that's just a simple fact of British life.
Especially when you're grassing someone up to over 36,000 Twitter followers, which is exactly what this woman did... And Twitter REALLY didn't like it.
Tech journalist Holly Brockwell sent a tweet to cleaner hire app Handy (and her sizeable Twitter following) after her cleaner got bleach on a towel in her bathroom and hid the evidence under another towel.
In the now-deleted Tweet, Brockwell tagged in the company, which users were suggesting was a dick move, and could see the cleaner getting fired for the mistake.
the level of entitlement required to publish a complaint about a worker to thousands of followers to effectively ENSURE they'll be punished— kylie janam (@hummusandpizza) July 16, 2017
Right so I see someone is grassing on their precariously employed cleaner who is probably shitting themselves about being fired— Eli Goldstone (@pauvrelapinou) July 16, 2017
Christ, it's a towel, send an email if you must rather than trying to use Twitter to get the company to sack a minimum wage worker. Grim.— Dawn Foster (@DawnHFoster) July 16, 2017

my ma was a cleaner out of necessity when I was a kid, nice to know you'd have seen us going hungry because of something like this— whd (@showcasemassive) July 16, 2017
It got a little heated, with Brockwell eventually deciding to delete the original Tweet and contact Handy to make sure the cleaner hadn't been fired.
There were also some people who jumped to her defence, saying she had every right to complain.
What a storm in a teacup. Why shouldn't you complain about people ruining your stuff? Bonkers.— Philip White-Jones (@phil_wj) July 16, 2017
I have a cleaner. I provide pay, they provide service. If they stopped doing a good job we would have a chat. Isn't that what a job is?— Ms Andreea 🦋 (@AndreeaPapillon) July 17, 2017
I think the woman who is complaining about her ruined hand towel is in the right. Yes cleaning is a low paid job but I don't see any problem— Katie Beswick (@ElfinKate) July 16, 2017
What do you guys think?
Was she right or wrong to call out the cleaner for this?— Everything Student (@everythinstudnt) July 17, 2017
