A pre-revenue startup, built entirely around artificial character limits, reliant on celebrity users, with no business model, boasting a billion-dollar valuation? I don’t know about you, but that sounds pretty frickin’ scary to me. Heck, it’s enough to give me nightmares about the dotcom crash.

While you’re at it, have your morbidly obese friend walk around as the Fail Whale. Whenever that thing appears, Twitter addicts scream in terror.
