UPDATE: 04:43 pm, May 05, 2019: The sources at Geo News have revealed that the tweet was part of a news and posted in continuity. All the other reports were just speculation and nothing else.
Earlier, as reported, Geo News faced a huge embarrassment on Saturday night when its official account tweeted, Tankhawa Nahi Dey Saktay Tou Kaam Kyun Kerwaatay Ho (Why u take work when you can’t pay).
The tweet has come at a point when reportedly majority of the Geo News staffers have not been paid from last three months.
Sources within the organisation said that it appears a disgruntled staffer has sent the tweet at his last working day to register his protest.
تنخواہ نہیں دے سکتے تو کام کراتے کیوں ہو؟

Interestingly the tweet posted at 9:27 has not been removed uptill now.
Despite all efforts, no Geo News official was available to give the official reaction on the development.
