We all knew this dark day was coming: Today, Twitter announced plans to poke outside advertising into our update streams. The Twitter blog post announcing the change in functionality and the shift in tone is cleverly written, but the writing has now not so invisibly been placed on the proverbial wall.
This message is a public service for women who wonder why men are “unable” to properly “read” price tags. I do not admit to using any of these pricing schemes but here are some examples I’ve heard about:
Price tag: $4.99 = Men’s Price: $4.00
We always round-down to zero all digits following a decimal point and then we add a penny. We just saved you a dollar! Thank us!
