City Paper is not for tourists
Dan Snyder’s Chapter 10.9 theme park chain, Six Flags, announced today it lost another $146.3 million in the first quarter of 2009 and that revenues were down 24% compared to the same period last year.
Snyder blamed the downturn on having Easter 2008 counted in the first quarter, while in 2009 it was a second-quarter affair.
Guess a lotta folks commemorate the resurrection of Jesus by paying $30 parking, eating $9 slices of pizza and riding rollercoasters named after licensed superheroes.
But that’s not today’s only big Six Flags news: Mr. Six has a Twitter account!
In announcing the pedo-mascot’s Tweeting venture, Six Flags spokesperson Angie Vieira Barocas declared, “Mr. Six has quite the imagination and is definitely hip to pop culture.”
Really? Well, they said the same things about the Craigslist killer.
THIS JUST IN: With Philip Markoff behind bars, Mr. Six becomes the creepiest dude still on the Internet.
So now that Mr. Six Twitters, I think we can all agree on something: Twitter is dead.
Thanks, Dan Snyder! You killed Twitter!
