Lee Pender Still Hates Twitter (BBC Edition)

Pender

Longtime readers of RCP will remember Lee Pender, our inimitable and polemically-inclined original blogger. Lee's since moved on to a custom publishing role in the company, by way of our sister publication Redmond magazine. But many of his posts live on.

He wrote one in 2011 called "5 Reasons Why I Hate Twitter," which still attracts visitors. One recent reader was a BBC radio producer working on a segment about the seventh anniversary of Twitter. BBC reached out to Lee, and he got on Skype to join a panel discussing Twitter.

The archive of the BBC program is here. The part about Twitter starts at about 37:10, and Lee starts bringing it at about 44 minutes. It's worth a listen. In case you were wondering, he still hates Twitter.
