Twitter Employee Realizes “Wow people on Twitter are mean”
A Twitter employee has apparently learned about the problem of abuse on Twitter firsthand. “Late last night, Brandon Carpenter wrote a number of tweets in response to nasty replies he received demanding that Twitter not make changes to its social network. Carpenter, according to his LinkedIn profile, is a senior software engineer at Twitter — he works on the iOS app. The abuse appeared to come in response to news that the social network will soon show tweets out of order.” One of his tweets was “Wow people on Twitter are mean”. Dude, you just noticed that?
