PETALING JAYA: A cheeky job request has allowed the Twitter administrator of the Mydin supermarket and retail chain to land a permanent position in the company.
In a tweet on Dec 23, it was revealed that the account administrator was an intern who was slated to finish their tenure at the end of 2021.
Following this, a slew of social media users chimed in to prompt Mydin towards considering giving the Twitter admin intern a permanent position.
The Twitter admins of local cinema operator Golden Screen Cinemas and online video streaming service provider iQIYI also came into the conversation, with both requesting for the intern to submit their resume to them.
This then led to Mydin’s Twitter admin addressing the chain's managing director Datuk Dr Ameer Ali Mydin in a tweet to ask for a permanent position, to which he responded with an ‘Ok’ on Jan 1.
This triggered much applause with many congratulatory messages from fellow Twitter users coming in for the admin.
“Congrats Min! Good news for the new year. Don’t forget to spend your parents,” said Twitter user @qweasdzxc2105
Some like @zulfadzley said the tweet made them want to convert their home groceries purchases from Tesco to Mydin.
Other users were amused at Ameer's response and were prompt to comment on it's fatherly and laid back nature.
“This was a very typical fatherly reply,” said user @dyabadlisha.
“Datuk’s reply to this is so fatherly. There’s not much talking but there is his answer,” added user @ateribblepoet.
The initial tweet has since received 16.9k likes and 6509 re-tweets as of the time of this article.
