Just last October, Blitter, billed as the Black alternative to Twitter, was all the rage and crafted as a safe space where Black voices could gather and be heard. In the past few days, it appears that the app’s developer Patrick Francis has flipped out on the social media network and claimed he’s sold Blitter for $1.4 billion to Facebook.
Blitter was trending earlier this morning (Feb. 7) with reactions from Twitter users noting that Pat, as he’s often referred to, was having another one of his epic meltdowns. In this particular string of thoughts, Twitter user @Signedbysophiee took note of Pat’s meltdown along with a caption of his “Bleets” (or is it Blit?) while criticizing his behavior of late.
“Ain’t no one got time to be supporting ANYONE whether black white or asian acting like this. Thank you “Pat” for again showing the world black people cant have nothing good without acting a fool. Good luck to any other Black App Developers! I hope this doesnt tarnish you,” @Signedbysophee wrote.
Twitter user @AuntieOG_ wrote in response to the trending topic, “The creator of Blitter having a mental breakdown and telling everyone that he sold Blitter for 1.4B to Facebook while stuffin his nose w/ cocaine. That nose candy got this n*ggã thinking he living better than everyone but he needs help.”
Since the wee hours of the morning, other Twitter users have chimed in with thoughts on Pat’s breakdown and his social media service, all while also claiming they’ve tried to leave Blitter but Pat won’t give them free. Pretty wild, we must say.
