It would seem that Jack Dorsey, the creator of Twitter, was "shocked and saddened" to learn that his social networking device was being used to disseminate pertinent and timely information during the recent civil unrest in Iran.
"Twitter was intended to be a way for vacant, self-absorbed egotists to share their most banal and idiotic thoughts with anyone pathetic enough to read them," said a visibly confused Dorsey, "When I heard how Iranians were using my beloved creation for their own means—such as organizing a political movement and informing the outside world of the actions of a repressive regime—I couldn't believe they'd ruined something so beautiful, simple, and absolutely pointless."
If you hadn't twigged this is of course a spoof article from the Onion! Well I found it funny anyway.
Thanks to Bob From Brockley for drawing my attention to this one
