In my mind it's just the GB staff staring each other down. Who is going to give first.

I don't want this to be a bug, I want this to be a feature.

White site heathen! I abused my power to replace that with the proper black image to save everyones eyes from the horror of a pure white background.

@mb: You're doing God's work, sir.

And yeah, I noticed this early this morning, but I thought it was either a joke or a stand against all the nonsense happening on twitter right now. I tend to read into things too much haha.

@mb: So yeah I just realized I've always used the white background without really thinking about it. I'm gonna try out the black background for a while to see what its all about. First impressions are not that good however, white lettering on a black background apparently makes me want to gouge my eyes out. My subconscious is screaming out that something is very very wrong the longer I look at the site this way. I'm scared.

But yeah when I saw the twitter feed thing earlier I initially though it was some kind of symbolic statement or something that I had missed until I clicked on the tweets and it linked me to what was actually supposed to be showing up. I had also hoped it was some kind of weird staff wide contest.

Maybe they could hire that programmer that was emailing them on the podcast.

Don't join the game industry and be abused! At Giant Bomb, 60-hour work weeks are very infrequent!

@robsamuel: I think I'm just used to it since I've been using it for so long now. I'm also just really used to black text on a white background from staring at Microsoft word documents for so many years now.

Also having this "issue". Also a white site user, because white text on a black background is annoying as hell.

I thought they were fed up with what a shithole twitter is and decided all future GB tweets would be blank.

The first time I saw this on the front page I thought there was some silly joke that started with someone pocket tweeting a bunch of blank tweets. I fully expected for my Twitter feed to be full of blank tweets. I can't tell if this speaks to how I think, what I think of the GB staff, or what I think of Twitter in general....

@camelizer: I think a lot of people are used to black text on white background due to books.

Seriously though I'd say it's an improvement on twitter in general and the real issue is why people are using the black version of the site.

I didn't even realise I was using the white site as the header and footer are both black.

I spent ages trying to click the white site button and wondering why it's not changing until I accidentally hit the black button.

Yo check this: sometimes I use the white version of the site, and sometimes I use the black version of the site. BOOM. Variety.

I'm digging the new 0 character limit for Twitter. Seems to have solved a huge issue.

This is exactly what I do. There also might be a little personal mental trickery of "from a distance a white background looks more like something I should be browsing while at work."

Also isn't the staff twitter feed one of those things that's broken fairly regularly?

Ah good this is known already. Was about to make a thread on it since I hadn't seen one the last day or two. "New Twitter Feature" doesn't exactly scream "broken twitter feed" when you skim over stuff.

Thanks for the patience.
