Buzzfeed Not a Fan of Account That Spoils Their Clickbait Headlines

Posted by - 09:30 AM on 08/01/14
Buzzfeed doesn't like the twitter account I recommended a few weeks back called "SavedYouAClick" -- I'm choking on crocodile tears.
Instead, @SavedYouAClick feels less like a delight than it does an insecure college freshman delighting in beating a professor to the punch line of her own lecture. Other times, it feels like a petulant 8-year-old unfairly answering simple questions posed to a younger sibling by Mom.

I don't think it's ironic for a site that runs on clickbait to openly take issue with @SavedYouAClick...

But the pig-headedness of the whole piece (and the Deadspin article they quote, which is so much more arrogant) is pretty hilarious.

Holy shit that excerpt from deadspin is one of the worst attempts to drop vocabulary to try and sound smart that I have ever seen. The whole article was garbage. Fuck buzzfeed

Surprised the article wasn't in list form ("10 Reasons Not to Save a Click"), right next to "18 Dogs That Look Like 12 Different Pastas"

This is awesome, I was thinking yesterday that the onion should do a piece like "10 reasons listicles are detrimental to society"
