As some of the major players in the worlds of tech, internet services and entertainment continue to build and evolve, we’ve seen Facebook buy WhatsApp and Oculus VR, Apple picking up Dre Beats, Comcast snatching Time Warner Cable, AT&T grabbing DirecTV and now all rumors point to Twitter in talks to acquire music and audio service/social network SoundCloud. This will give Twitter a little more media depth, but it also may be all about Twitter making a move to diversify its service before all the good ones get bought up by Facebook or Google.
Pat Sajak got a bunch of people’s panties all in a twist a couple days ago when he tweeted “I now believe global warming alarmists are unpatriotic racists knowingly misleading for their own ends”, but this is hardly the first time the Wheel of Fortune host has said something fucktarded on the Internet and it won’t be the last. Before he took to Twitter as an outlet for his weird and often folksy sounding bits of wisdom, he cranked out gems of crazy on patsajak.com (which now just has a link to his Twitter feed). He’s been doing this for a long, long time, it’s just this latest one that has gotten the most attention, probably because news in the US is now almost entirely just repeating what other people say on the internet.
Many companies these days have a social media presence to answer the questions, concerns and praise of their customers. And in this social media sphere, companies get a lot of stupidity hurled at them, this being the internet and all, and most of the time, this stupidity goes unanswered. But when one guy in the UK started slamming Domino’s Pizza on Twitter because he supposedly suffered pretty bad burns on his dick when he tried to make sweet, sweet love to his pizza pie, Domino’s was not shy to address the gentleman’s grievances.
