Unfortunately he wanted to have a weekend off this month and Christmas Day this year for family commitments so we thought we'd sack him

He also clarified he didn't "hack" the account.

I would like to make it CRYSTAL CLEAR I have not "hacked" any account. I created the account with permission of my ex-employers. Night x

BuzzFeed contacted the Plough Pub. They declined to comment on the matter but they did say that they will "take care of it later on."

He has since said that he has been offered a new job, thanks to his tweets.

This afternoon, landlord of the pub Steve Potts, said: "When Jim, as head chef, informed me that he would not be working on Christmas Day, and other Sundays in the near future, I was left with little choice but to end our arrangement." "I had been quite clear with him when he started here in October that Sundays are our busiest days of the week, and that all our chefs have to work that day."
