In one of the lamer April Fools’ jokes in a while, Twitter has announced Twttr:
Starting today, we are shifting to a two-tiered service: Everyone can use our basic service, Twttr, but you only get consonants. For five dollars a month, you can use our premium “Twitter” service which also includes vowels.
We’re doing this because we believe that by eliminating vowels, we’ll encourage a more efficient and “dense” form of communication. We also see an opportunity to diversify our revenue stream.
The real joke’s on Twitter. Many of us would gladly fork over $5 a month for a better service. Say, access to the “old TweetDeck,” unthrottled API, and most robust uptime.
