Case Study Social Media Conflict Of Interest

Ontario’s (Canada) new Digital Marketing Deputy Minister left her American government job, of the same function, and was highly critical of US President Donald Trump during his campaign. The question is, was she entitled? The simple answer is, did she build her ‘fame’ based on her job? Then she can’t use that same fame for her favorite candidate because the candidate, the fame and the job aren’t hers but the people.

Hartley, a San Francisco native and self-described “nerd” in her Twitter bio, did not mention politics as a factor in her decision to leave 18F for the Great White North in a statement Monday..The government did not reveal her salary, which will be at the deputy minister level, between $205,000 and $311,050.
