Angry AT&T, O2 Customers Twitter Petition For Lower iPhone 3G S Upgrade Prices
In retaliation of AT&T and O2′s unwillingness to subsidize the iPhone 3G S for current 3G owners, users on Twitter are forming “twittitions”, a new virtual petition that users can “sign” by posting a tweet. At the time this was written, the Twitition for O2, which was created first, was at 2621 signatures, and the AT&T Twitition at 1858 signatures.
It’s not bad in Twitter terms, but we’re guessing it will take a lot more signatures before either company is compelled to make any changes. Still, taking a quick look around the Twitterverse, it’s easy to see that there’s a lot of resentment toward the subsidizing fiasco going around. A search for tweets directed at AT&T’s official account show just how angry people are.
If you’re upset about the subsidizing practices of O2 or AT&T, we suggest you consider signing one of the above Twititions.
