Apparently we’re ultimately living in George Orwell’s 1984 .
Amazon comes under fire for allegedly manufacturing fake Twitter accounts (under its name ” Amazon FC Consul “) to silence any existing criticism of the working conditions of fulfillment classes which, if you’re unmindful, are known for being particularly sweatshop-like.
Recently various Forums users have called out Amazon for this… bizarre (to say the least) behavior.
Absolutely without further ado, here are some of the most effective parodies and examples of the weird Orwellian tweets!
As Americans, we’re all probably pretty familiar with the “garage” success story in which successful billionaires started out working in humble conditions, such as in a basement or garage until they made it big. This Twitteruser brought up an interesting different viewpoint!
This thread is pretty eye-opening, but we certainly don’t want to dominate the discussion here – what do you all think? Are billionaires like Jeff Bezos and Steve Jobs self-made? Or did they receive a little more help than the rest of us along the way?
Oh boy, Mr. Jeff Bezos sure is in the hot seat right now for his dramatic divorce from wife of 25 years, Mackenzie Bezos. Bezos, currently the world’s richest man and Founder and CEO of Amazon, tweeted on Wednesday that he and Mackenzie would be seeking out an amicable divorce after a trial period of separation.
And if you thought that wasn’t enough drama for today, economists are speculating that the high-profile divorce could potentially cost Amazon billions of dollars in stock and cause Bezos, who is currently worth $137 billion, to fall down the rankings of the richest people in the world.
But here’s the icing on the cake: on Thursday, The National Enquirer released a story alleging that Bezos had had an affair with former TV anchor Lauren Sanchez, along with a text message to Sanchez in which he writes “I love you, alive girl. I will show you with my body, and my lips and my eyes, very soon.” Add some risque selfies to the mix and we’ve got ourselves the perfect recipe for some golden memes and reaction tweets. Eat ’em up!
Seattle-based Amazon announced its plans for HQ2 today, stating that its two new locations will be based in Queens, New York and Arlington, Virginia. In honor of such a momentous occasion, we’re bring you some excellent Amazon and Jeff Bezos memes for you to get your fill.
