In the past week both Apple and Twitter have carpet bombed on their respective development communities. As I’ve written about previously – I’ve been off Twitter now for nearly 2 months.
This week an interesting switch flipped in my head.
When I hear ‘Twitter’, my head replaces it with another corporate site I have little presence within. Most often it’s ‘World of Warcraft’ or ‘Second Life’. Sometimes it’s ‘MySpace’.
It gives whatever statement a quaint, historical tint to it. Rather than the blanket of pretension I’ve been feeling lately.
