all the people rushing to their keyboards to type in their "i told you so" hot takes on Quibi:— Andrew Chen 🇺🇸 (@andrewchen) October 22, 2020

Go build something instead of using your energy to let twitter know how smart you are the say the consensus thing.

It’s maybe insensitive to make fun of Quibi when many ppl lost their jobs; less wrong to decry the fact that $2 BILLION was poured into content/tech that had yet to be proven, when there were many proven media ventures elsewhere that could have used even a fraction of the money— Cherie Hu (@cheriehu42) October 22, 2020
The real question is will Quibi be included in the In Memoriam section of award shows.— W. Kamau Bell (@wkamaubell) October 22, 2020
Quibi 2020 - slightly later in 2020
And just to be clear, I take no joy in Quibi shutting down. It’s actually really, really sad.— isa watson 👩🏾💻 (@isadwatson) October 22, 2020
For me, it just highlights the discrepancy in access to funding. I see so many founders jump through crazy hoops for lunch money—basically rounding errors on their pre-launch raise.
I was going to write a joke about Quibi but I don’t even have the attention span for that— Eileen Mary 🎃’Connell (@i_Lean) October 22, 2020
The failure of Quibi is reassuring to those of us who thought "That sounds like a terrible idea but maybe I'm just old"— Eddie Robson (@EddieRobson) October 22, 2020
