Today's WWD includes a long, poetic eulogy for @CondeElevator, which shuttered yesterday amid a flurry of publicity. Author Zeke Turner connects the Twitter account with an earlier, messier version of the Internet, back when Gawker covered local media and people used "dooced" as a verb. "Twitter was aroused by this weird taste of 2003 in 2011," he writes. "The Internet felt punk again." [WWD; Previously]
