First on the chopping block ‘Ello’:
Cool kids suddenly had invites and @’s for me. Guess what? All those invites and @’s came through Facebook.
Once on Ello other warning signs appeared this would be the land of non-specific niche and boredom.
The founders’ idea of a legitimate consumer good was an obnoxiously named $2500 bicycle.

A new racist Anti-Obama Campaign has been launched by the Koch Brothers. Via a sock puppet in Arizona named Chris ‘Get the government off my state’ Lotto a Facebook campaign urging paid employees of Koch Industries to stick anti-Obama Post It notes on gas pumps across America.
Proof of the Koch Brother involvement until this point has been scant. Further proof of their involvement say anti-gas pump campaign spokesman and striker for La Liga de Alajuelense Jonathan McDonald.
“It’s not well known that Koch Industries owns Post-It Notes and the Koch Brothers are up to their necks in the oil business. This is a sticky, cynical ploy to increase Koch Industry profits,” panted McDonald as he played keep-y up-y with a soccer ball at the Estadio Alejandro Morera Soto. “The Koch Brothers didn’t make billions being stupid – the fact there is little evidence of their involvement in this so-called grassroots campaign only bolsters our case.”
“This is clearly a racist campaign on behalf of the Koch Brothers, Mr. Lotto and these other so-called ‘grassroots activists’ growled Mickey Hazard, former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder and current London Black Cab Driver. “Have you ever tried to find black Post It Notes? They don’t bloody exist.”
McDonald, Hazard and other left leaning opponents have teamed up to form ‘Kick Racism out of Gasoline’ campaign. The new group has enlisted two powerful enemies in its campaign against these gas pump post its: The Wind and Daddy Yankee Reggaeton Mega Hit ‘La Gasolina’.
Representatives of the Koch Brothers were not available for comment.
