A pre-revenue startup, built entirely around artificial character limits, reliant on celebrity users, with no business model, boasting a billion-dollar valuation? I don’t know about you, but that sounds pretty frickin’ scary to me. Heck, it’s enough to give me nightmares about the dotcom crash.
That’s why I agree with The Joy of Tech’s trick-or-treat costume suggestion for Halloween: come as the Twitter Bird!
While you’re at it, have your morbidly obese friend walk around as the Fail Whale. Whenever that thing appears, Twitter addicts scream in terror.
