“Unfavorite” new Twitter changes

DI Denied

Somehow, in the age of constant updates — with frequently bad reviews following them — application developers still haven’t learned the lesson that if something isn’t broken, you shouldn’t try to fix it. The Twitter is the latest app to fudge this up by changing the infamous “favorite” to a “like” with a heart. What is this blasphemy? We want the favorites back! It goes without saying that people really don’t like this update — so Twitter, do us a favor(ite) and change it back.

Following suit of last year, ABC Family is abstaining from including a Harry Potter movie marathon during the infamous “25 Days of Christmas.” While we understand that these eight movies can take up a lot of airtime, removing everyone’s favorite weekend from everyone’s favorite 25 days doesn’t really make sense. Especially not when they play “How The Grinch Stole Christmas” six times, “The Santa Claus” 9 times and “Elf” 12 times. Petition to bring back a HPW anyone?
