  • Yep, drive past the wreck without looking and wonder what I missed or stare while driving past and regret having done so... Ah, the occasional comment section dilemma.

  • You, at least. Not many others it would seem. Twitter has been an outlet for hate speech since it's inception, so they're trying for some positive PR. Shrug. No need to get upset. You could just scroll past stuff you're not interested in Posted via the Android Central App
  • TD is an attention wh@re, that's the only reason they cam up with this. I don't see any conversation where such an emoticons would come in handy... Maybe I'm wrong, but most likely not Posted via the Android Central App

  • Twitter continues the long, slow descent into obscurity and oblivion. I would RIP them, but I can't care enough. Unlocked Marshmallow Nexus 6 on Verizon. I'm a happy guy.
