Discofuck

I emerged from my office to find I had received 26 text messages in the hour I had been concentrating so heavily, and my first though was, “Jesus, I’m not THAT popular (though of course I am very popular.)”  The following is the transcription of a “Disco” conversation –– a new service that offers group chat via text –– that occurred Monday afternoon.  I have no idea how many people were invited or participated or… anything about what went on:

Text at 6:54 PM: Disco is a group texting service.  Standard SMS rates may apply or chat for FREE w/ our app – http://disco.com/da  More info?  Text *help  To quit?  Text *leave

Text at 6:54 PM: Hi Itinerant Daughter, it’s YDN.  Welcome to Disco!  I just added you to “Text messages.”  Reply to join our chat or text *who for roster.

Text at 6:55 PM: YDN added you to “Text messages.”

Text at 7:00 PM: Looks like you’re not there.  To save you trouble, we’ve muted the group.  Reply to start receiving texts again.  To leave, text *leave!

Text at 7:00 PM: CF: What is this

Text at 7:17 PM: Looks like you’re not there.  To save you trouble, we’ve muted the group.  Reply to start receiving texts again.  To leave, text *leave!

Text at 7:43 PM: ID: *LEAVE

Text at 7:42 PM: You left the group.  Text *create to start a new group.  eg ‘*create work buddies’.

Text at 10:21 PM: CF, AO, HS and 49 others joined the group today.  To see the member list, text *who.

Text at 10:27 PM: EC: Please remove me

Text at 10:29 PM: JS: Clearly no one has the power to remove anyone.  The only way to stop this is for everyone to stop replying.  Hopefully this will be the last one.

Text at 10:35 PM: CF: Here this guy should.  Steve jobs twitter account “Applejobs” maybe Yale can set up a spam on him next time…
