13 Relatable Tweets from Women Who Got Hit on Over LinkedIn

Sliding into your DMs like...harassment

13 Relatable Tweets from Women Who Got Hit on Over LinkedIn

Yep, you read that correctly. As if men didn’t already have enough platforms to slide into our DMs, they’ve now resorted to the one platform where flirting is completely unacceptable. LinkedIn is designed to generate professional connections, not romantic ones. Nevertheless, Twitter is blowin’ up with accounts of men trying to hit on women over the platform.

These tweets have us seriously face-palming. But on a serious note, keep in mind that sexual harassment is never okay at work (or anywhere else), so be vigilant when looking out for creeps on the platform.

Here are 13 women who’ve experienced the dreaded LinkedIn flirting:

This gal offers the perfect tasteful response for unwanted attention on LinkedIn.

If this is what adulthood is, we want no part in it.

Out of every form of social media...he chose LinkedIn?

Some people just cannot take a hint.

Repeat after us: LinkedIn is. Not. A. Dating. Site.

Seriously lost for words on this one. Eight years later?? Boy bye.

GroupMe is the happy hour to LinkedIn's boardroom. Neither is okay.

Work-life balance maybe?
