You can't possibly guess what happened next, can you? That's right—Twitter is trying to peck him to death with a million tiny beaks.
One of the kinder responses so far:

On one hand, you've got to give him points for boldness—he knew this was going to happen but he did it anyway. On the other hand, one wonders if the premise of this show is a bid to improve his depleted moral capital after the whole Apple/Foxconn/This American Life thing. (Which, if you're an ends-justifies-the-means kind of person, did its job in drawing national attention to how our devices get made.)
Either way, it's a p.r. mess. But I'm holding my breath—and any critiques—until I've actually seen the damn show. I figure he's owed at least that much.
