A Twitter user in Toronto by the name of Sunith, apparently forgot how the internet works after tweeting about wanting some pot. Here is what the tweet read:
Any dealers in Vaughan wanna make a 20sac chop? Come to Keele/Langstaff Mr. Lube, need a spliff.
Unfortunately for him, the police were listening.
Awesome! Can we come too? MT @Sunith_DB8R Any dealers in Vaughan wanna make a 20sac chop? Come to Keele/Langstaff Mr. Lube, need a spliff.

Making the situation even worse, Sunith was actually a Mr. Lube employee. Shortly after being retweeted by York Regional Police, his workplace caught on.
@YRP Thank you to the York Regional Police for your help and great work. The matter has now been handled.

Sunith was swiftly fired, and since then, has changed his Twitter username, also protecting his tweets. While his profile bio currently reads, “DISCLAIMER: My tweets are NOT serious by any means,” Mr. Lube and police didn’t feel the same way.
