@Hulagirl: it seems she deleted the tweet, and the agent who shared the screen shot to hold her accountable has now protected her account. I did find this article summarizing the events:

I missed what happened with this agent on twitter. Don't know what the Tweet was that drew fire.

adh8686 I heard the same thing--also unsubstantiated.

Unsubstantiated, but apparently she's in the process of bringing in new agents and interns after firing her entire crew en-masse via email last week. This doesn't smell right to me, so I wanted to let anyone not on Twitter know.

I am closing this out because I do not wish to have my work represented by this agent, plain and simple!

Submitted a #PitDark request to Tara Gilbert, who sent it to Marisa & Amy Giuffrida, who she thought might be a better fit. Amy left the agency and invited me to resubmit when she takes a new position, so I'm closing this.

Withdrew my query 6/4. Not who I want to represent myself or my work.

EQ: 5/12
Thank you all for making me aware of the situation. After reading her Twitter page, and seeing all the negative tweets she has both received and given, I am wondering if I should withdraw my query. Marisa, in the kindest way possible, seems a little too unstable for my liking.

Withdrew query on 6/4, no longer seems like an agent I would like to work with.

EQ: 4/28/20
I withdrew my query on 6/4/20 in response to the situation commented on above. This doesn't seem like a safe agent or stable agency.

Marisa has fired her entire staff preemptively via email, per this tweet:

I came across a Twitter thread that seems to imply other agents don't think very highly of her. I wish there were a few more details but I thought people should be able to see this before they submit to her, to make their own decisions: https://twitter.com/beth_phelan/status/1268218472435265538
