Need some ice for that burn? MySpace Tom scorches Twitter user

When you think of “MySpace Tom”, the last thing you'd expect is him to school someone on the internet via Twitter, right? Well, user @polotapia knew exactly what buttons to press when he confronted Tom about not being able to keep MySpace alive. The conversation between the two can be seen below:

Soon after, Tom noted that the user had deleted his account, which is probably due to the mockery that @polotapia endued after the incident. We know that the tweet was retweeted over 6,300 times and comments such as, “you got ooooooowwwwwwwwned by myspace tom ahahahahahahahhahahahhahahahahah” and “dude you got dissed the fuck out by @myspacetom ahahaha” were posted; who would stick around for that?

As this was going on, users began realizing that Tom was open to answer questions and began talking about Tom's signature Myspace profile photo and suggesting he should change it. The conversation went as followed:

I think it's safe to say that if you're going to insult Tom, don't.

The design is nice, but it's probably too late now.

They'd probably be tenfold more successful if they didn't halfa** it and renamed myspace.

Myspace started being the synonym for "fail" around 5 years ago.

The way Facebook is going now I would say it actually has a chance..

i never really used myspace, because every page i looked at would make my ears and eyes bleed with the animated backgrounds and music that would start blasting...

maybe if they locked it down a little bit, it might be better

nahh thats what i liked of myspace, everything its customizable it was really your personal space xD

but then there was people abusing it and it was just bloated

I used Myspace back in 2007 when I was back on the dating scene, right when Facebook was starting to take off in my little corner of the world, so I moved over to Facebook but kept Myspace up until more people I knew were not using Myspace Messenger anymore which was probably IMHO the best thing about it at the time.

I use Facebook, but not religiously. The occasional post and that is it. I use it to follow my family in California and Georgia more than anything.

To be honest though - not sure if bashing people is really going to do any good other than create a laugh for some, a bad perception of Myspace's Tom, and more hate towards the service.

The guy doesn't and hasn't had anything to do with MySpace since 2005 when he sold the company. He's now retired and can care less about any service. If I was him and some douchebag attacked me on the Internet, I'd b****slap him too...

So, he is a douche because he defended himself?


Defended himself with an insult, just like ir0nw0lf used, which makes ir0nw0lf no better than Tom.

Actually, worse. People care enough to retweet Tom.

thats awesome! He sold myspace at exactly the right moment!
Its like deal or no deal! just at the right time lol! He "spanked the banker" or "spanked the buyer" in this case

He is still in the system... where it is now a Bot friend to show you how to do Myspace add a friend.. he is generally the first "friend" you will have.... I still have my myspace and have only been on it twice to check out the new launch.
