    I don't think I get it. I don't know why Gabe is so mad. Why did he slip off the Twitter rage wagon? Is this based on a real thing? The news post didn't clear it up for me either.

    Did you think Gabe actually got into some Twitter trouble?

    Gabe has in past put his foot in his mouth on Twitter. The joke is that he managed to do so again on topic that should be completely uncontroversial. Fortunately for Tube's sake it appears to be only a joke and not inspired by current events beyond said platform switch.

    Is that really a controversial opinion? Judging by how people talk about Android phones online, it seems to be a commonly shared one.

    Forgive my ignorance, but what does Tube do for PA? He recently commented that Jerry has seen his desk, so I think he works at PA headquarters, not just remotely.

    Tube's the adult.

    I'd rather be led by a comedian than ruled by a joke.

    Tube does social media for PA and is head moderator on these forums. Probably some other things, but those are the relevant things I know.

    I don't believe it. That post would have a bunch of hearts on Twitter -- even with the threat of murder. The screen shows zero hearts. :) lol

    I refuse to believe that's an iPhone because it's not enormous.

    I imagine in the comic he got tired of seeing someone talk about how feature "x" was on their phone first because who cares? It's just a phone. Why are you telling me this, I don't even know you, random android user. :|

    I've really enjoyed not having to deal with iTunes. I don't think I could ever go back.

    Well done... and that ratio.

  • ZacharyNoormanZacharyNoorman Registered User new member
    That last line felt more outward directed than to just Gabe.

    @tube I would have thought you were the adorable mascot.

  • cB557cB557 voOOP Registered User regular
    @shadowysea07 Just fyi, you're not supposed to @ tube. They come up as a notification on his phone so it's easier for the staff to get to him in emergencies, and consequently he's not supposed to be @'d for anything other than that.
