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:

Couldn’t have said it better ourselves…DMs are open literally everywhere else but LinkedIn. Amen. 

Y’all. My DMs are open literally everywhere except LinkedIn. Don’t flirt with me on LinkedIn. I don’t know anyone well enough to flirt with them on LinkedIn. We could be living together, and I’m not flirting with you on LinkedIn. — Thursday’s Childe (@EreikaWritesFic) June 7, 2019

…seriously?!? This is just plain creepy. In what world would this be acceptable?

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

When do men continue to use LinkedIn like Tinder? Just blocked ANOTHER man for refusing to respect my stated boundaries. Dudes: if she’s telling you don’t hit on her, don’t argue back that there’s no rule against getting to know someone. FAIL. — smithbrainz (@smithbrainz) September 6, 2019
