The Guardian, a 188-year-old UK-based newspaper, announced today that they will be discontinuing their paper editions and publishing exclusively on Twitter. While I applaud them for their forward-thinking, I can’t help but wonder at the wisdom of the timing of the announcement. I mean, it’s April 1st, for crying out loud! How do they expect to be taken seriously when they make an announcement this big on April Fool’s Day? Wouldn’t it have been smarter to post this announcement yesterday or tomorrow?
People, you really should think before posting stuff like this. I mean, really.
