Yes, they are allowed to do that. Don't post anything online that you wouldn't say to your boss face to face.

MS is an employee at will State, which means that you can be terminated for any reason that is not discriminatory. More and more employers are looking at social media and using that as a predicate for discipline. I would write nothing on social media, that you wouldn't say to an employer in person.
