Fellow Twitter users:
Hi, there! It’s me, Larry the Twitter Bird! You may remember me hatching in front of Twitter’s headquarters a few months back. I called on my company to #ClickClean and power its data centers with 100% renewable energy. I also dyed my feathers green.
So imagine my happiness as was I skimming my colleagues’ feeds and came across this tweet from Chief Communications Officer Gabriel Stricker:
The New York Times article Gabe links describes Patagonia’s history of putting sustainability before short-term profit. Gabe seems to think Patagonia has the right idea on how businesses should be run.
Well, Gabe, I agree. It’s time Twitter joined Apple, Google, Facebook and other online companies in committing to power its data centers with renewable energy. Patagonia says its customers want a sustainable product. You know our users do too.
Apple, Google and Facebook are already leading the energy sector with their commitments, and frankly, that ruffles my feathers. If Twitter can help topple dictatorships, surely it can convert to clean energy. Twitter colleagues, let’s be the innovators we know how to be. We already have the best logo.
