Tweetdeck’s user interface has reached such impressive heights of ugliness it is now being used as a ‘purging’ aid by bulimics, according to Milo Yiannopoulos.
Tweetdeck’s infamously terrible user interface design, which received another bone-headed update this week, is so visually offensive it is now being used by bulimics as an emetic of choice, The Kernel can reveal.
“I used to use Ipecac like most people,” Mandy, 27, from Hartlepool told The Kernel. “One day I found I’d run out of my usual stuff, but, instead of panicking, I just fired up Tweetdeck.
“I got hooked, and the results have been dramatic. Since I switched to Tweetdeck, I’ve lost a stone! One look at that UI and anything I’ve eaten in the last four hours comes back up instantly.”
Another long-time Tweetdeck enthusiast, one M. Nadjm, has been reported as saying: “It has become an integral part of my binge-purge cycle.
“After one too many consolatory kebabs, I was approaching twenty stone. Thanks to Tweetdeck, I’m back down to eighteen and I feel much happier.”
This “off-piste” use of the software is thought to be the first case of lousy user interface design finding such a robust alternative application.
Iain Dodsworth, chief executive of Tweetdeck and a former champion figure skater, could not be reached for comment.
