gah so does the purchase of iPhone Tweetie mean Twitter now gets to serve us ads through apps we all paid for?
Did anyone else get "hail Twitter" from Loren's blog post? Not to mention, the lack of any kind of note of appreciation for the supporters (us)? I'm not trying to be a debbie downer here, and I'm glad dude made his quick million, but I just can't help but feel swindled... and I hate feeling like I got taken for a ride.
Purchase #1: Tweetie
Purchase #2: Tweetie 2
Purchase #3: Nanobundle2 to get access to OS X Tweetie 2
How's that "fool me once" quote go again?
I think you're not the only one on the same boat here…
I bought Tweetie just a week before Tweetie 2 was made known to the world, and I had to buy the "…2" version if I wanted to gain the host of new features. Fine.
When MH bought added Tweetie for Mac onto the nanoBundle2, I got it on the premise that I'd get access to another "version 2" when the beta was due for release.
And the news comes out from Twitter that they now own atebits and Loren is now part of their payroll…
Honestly, how does that look to everyone?
I am usually very reasonable, but only when it's within reason. I find it rather disgusting how Loren has not made one statement regarding this so-called "beta" ever since it was announced by MacHeist. His latest blog post about the acquisition makes no mention of this either, and it's just all about praising (his own) the iPhone client.
I have no respect for individuals who uphold such mentality.
