Twitter hilariously reacts to the Apple Watch announcement, is not impressed

09.09.14 3 years ago

Unless you live under a rock – or don't live on social media – you know that Apple hosted their annual reveal today. The Twittersphere was alive with activity; both fans and detractors rapid-firing text into the void at a rate so fast, everyone's feed looked like a “Matrix” simulation. Apple showcased the new iPhone 6, with its myriad of levels and features. But the real story was just one more thing…

…the Apple Watch. Not the iWatch (because that's what our digital overlords are doing and they don't want us to remember that every time we compulsively check the time). Reception was mixed but we collected some of the funniest reactions below!
