As is usual, this morning I woke up and tweeted up a storm, loving the functionality and aesthetic value of my favourite Twitter app, UberTwitter. Most of my tweets were focused on the Manatt Enquiry (look out for my post on that circus) and after that I went to take my customary afternoon nap. (which wasn’t really good since my fan burn up).
But I digress.
When I woke up I opened #UberTwitter to greet my followers and was “Forbidden”, I found this odd and so went to the sorry excuse for an app, Twitter for BB, thinking Uber would be back soon. Imagine my shock when the cruel truth was revealed; Twitter had suspended my #goodaz, #hottaz #UberTwitter for failing to adhere to some terms and conditions. There was a mad rush on my timeline as everyone tried to secure the next best thing to satisfy the Twitter munchies. That next best thing would turn out to be SocialScope. There was some mention made of some obscure apps called “Blaq” and “Seesmic” – I’m not even sure of it’s spelling. Pfffft.
This mad rush would cause the users of SocialScope, who swore they were some kind of elite group, because they used this app, to react strongly. They felt that SocialScope was being made common.
Permit me now to use the native patois.
Look ere socialscope users, oonu doe speshal! Shet oonu rassssss! Get ova it! Wi nat using SocialScope caw we waan to, we using it caw we doe ave a choice! A di next best ting! Suh dis bagga chattin bout how wi a flood socialscope, STFU! Obviously socialscope loves our patronage, dats why dem a prostitute dem product to wi suh! Hssst! #HaveASeat yaw man.
This is my tribute to UberTwitter. An app which fused functionality with aesthetic beauty. UberTwitter is a pleasure to tweet from, the midnight theme was a treat for my eyes. The Labourites no doubt loved the nature theme for it’s rich green appearance and the other themes were all equally good. I’ll miss the beautiful yellow which signified I had a Mention, the gentle and peaceful (not labourite) green which signalled my Direct Messages. Most of all, I’ll miss the little uber icon. The Vancouver Sun alleges three million people are affected by this suspension and murdering of UberTwitter. We miss you Uber! Love live Uber! R.I.P! So until UberSocial is free, I’ll continue to struggle on with the bland and unexciting SocialScope. (side eyes all you enthusiastic SocialScope users).
P.S. This post humbly submits that all other apps, excepting Uber & SocialScope, should be removed from the internet.
