Twitter's Response to Apple's iPhone 5 Announcement
Another Apple event has come and gone, and Twitter has had its chance to weigh in on what Tim Cook and the rest of Apple's senior management announced. Unlike the Amazon event, which was favorably received, the response to today's announcements have been tepid at best. Twitter being Twitter, most chose to either Tweet what was announced or crack a joke. As we pour one out for iTunes, bask in Twitter's collective humor below.

Tim Cook walks out completely naked. “Let’s talk about some things getting longer.”

EarPods. Wow. After 3 years of design you'd think they'd have a better name for it. #apple

Other than no iMacs, were any of the rumors *wrong*? It was like the whole internet had the run sheet for today’s event.

If the Nano gets smaller it's just going to be a song that gets stuck in your head.

So, the nano is a touch iPod, but it's not an iPod touch. Got it.

Just once I'd like an Apple exec to say, "These aren't the best we've done. They're pretty good. But the ones before were better."

a shirtless jony ive: "this is the finest product with the tightest fit and finish I've ever designed." stands up, flexes.
