Google technical writer Shirley accuses Twitter Engineer of sexual assault. According to a report, Google technical writer Noirin Shirley posted on her personal blog about the incident that happened to her last night at ApacheCon in Atlanta. The title of her post was “A hell of a time” in which he wrote about the interaction of her with a Twitter Engineer Florian Leibert. The incident happened in a conference party that was organized by Shirley in her hostel room.

She wrote: ďHe brought me in to the snug, and sat up on a stool. He grabbed me, pulled me in to him, and kissed me. I tried to push him off, and told him I wasnít interested (I may have been less eloquent, but I donít think I was less clear). He responded by jamming his hand into my underwear and fumbling.Ē

Leibert or Shirley have not posted anything on their Twitter accounts after Shirley posted the story on her personal blog.

Shirley also said:ďItís not the first time something like this has happened to me, at all. Itís not the first time itís happened to me at a tech conference. But it is the first time Iíve spoken out about it in this way, because Iím tired of the sense that some idiot can ruin my day and never have to answer for it.Ē

Leibert is yet to post or explain his side of the story. Although people are reverberating on Twitter by mentioning them using @ symbol.
