The September 5th Tweets (and the Words ‘iPhone’ and ‘iPod’ Thrown Into the Title for Good Measure)



I had a blast reading through Twitter reactions to the Apple announcement today, and I wanted to share the joy.

Please enjoy a completely random compilation of the tweets that stuck out to me today for no particular reason.

Liveblogging the Gettysburg Address: “Ok, we’re starting…Abe looks tired…opens with historical reference…no mention of iPods yet…”

Dunstan

I am ashamed by my constant reloading of Engadget’s Apple Event coverage. Ashamed.

Daniel

Think of it more as a $100/month “early access” exclusive membership fee.

iPhone doubter prediction: “APPLE IS LOWERING PRICES BECAUSE THEY ARE HAVING PROBLEMS SELLING IPHONES!!!11!!”

@chockenberry, the doubter prediction was inevitable. If Apple brought world peace, it would be a sign that iPhone sales were sluggish.

Aaron

Shutting off Twitter for the day. I can’t handle the Apple orgasms

Sean

It’s clear that Apple has become more infatuated with their products than their users.

people complaining about the iphone price drop haven’t paid attention to how gadget tech/pricing has worked for the last two decades.

Dave

why don’t they just make zunes the free prize in boxes of Apple Jacks?

Scott

why do people think the Beatles will make online distribution of music legitimate? Apple has sold 3 billion songs online… that’s legit.

Neven

I wonder if all these iPhone price drop haters go down to the store and spew insults when there’s a 2-for-1 special on cereal

John

Twitter’s going to be offline for a couple of hours tonight. You know what that means – WE’RE ALL GETTING iPHONES! WHOOOOO!

John

Some might say the iPod Touch home screen is half empty. Others might say it’s half full. Me? I say, “Ooh, new icon for Calculator!”

Shawn

On my way to the Apple Store for an iPhone.
