After last week’s Twitter storm over the switching of the gold star “favorite” icon. to a heart-shaped “like” (that does a Magic Pony sparkly thing when you click it!), I’ve stumbled across this post describing how you can change the heart icon to whatever you like.
All kidding aside, as I mentioned over the weekend, the reason I think this struck a chord is because Twitter inadvertently reminded people that part of the IT infrastructure they use isn’t a public service or entity, but a for-profit corporation. Which is probably a good thing to remember.
