Quoted: The poor guy from New York whose Twitter handle is @Rogers on last night’s nationwide service outage

The wrath of a thousand Canadians is a mighty sight. #rogersoutage

—Australian-born Brooklynite Glenn Rogers, holder of the @rogers Twitter handle, on the hundreds of furious tweets he received during yesterday’s hours-long service outage. (For the record, the telecommunications company’s account is @RogersHelps.) The tech exec told CP24 that he gets a raft of angry, 140-character missives every few months, but last night’s haul was the by far the most irate. Just wait until the angry hordes hear that Rogers (the company) once asked Rogers (the man) to donate his Twitter handle to it.
