I was greatly shocked and then saddened when I heard announce today that not only was the chat room going away, but more importantly, the behind the scenes live broadcast of TWiT was going away too.
One of the greatest things I loved about watching the Network was seeing how transparent it was. You got to see everything. What went on in between shows, how the shows got setup, and we even got to hear what people were thinking. It was something that no other network has ever done and it was amazing to me! So amazing, that it inspired me to start The #IBD Round Table Discussion podcast from page.
You could tell that while Leo was announcing this that it was a very hard decision for him. It wasn't something that he really wanted to do. But unfortunately, the internet trolls has forced his hands. It's really a shame that something so inspiring, so great, and so different than anything / everyone else has to change because of either someone or someones.
I'm truly going to miss the connection that I really felt to , it's employees, and it's hosts. Don't get me wrong, I'm still going to be a avid watcher of all the shows, but for people like me who loved to keep the live stream on all day long, I'm going to be losing that special connection that made TWiT so different than every place else.
- I'm really sorry that you, your employees, and your family are having to deal with such craziness! The work you do is amazing and I GREATLY enjoy it! Maybe one day we'll be lucky enough that the trolls will go away and we can get back a piece of TWiT that made it so special.
