Colin Jost Eviscerates Time Warner Cable In A Crowd-Pleasing Twitter Tirade

By Grainger Heavensbee | Saturday Night Live | June 18, 2015 |

I know that Colin Jost is not exactly well regarded in these parts. I have found that my fondness for Jost is inversely proportional to my increasing disdain for Michael Che, so by the end of last season, I was ready to dry hump Colin Jost in the back of a Volkswagen. I think maybe the problem with Jost is that he thrives on anger, and he just hasn’t had the right target yet.

Last night on Twitter, he found the right target: Time Warner Cable, which has been dicking Colin Jost around for four months. For whatever reason, Jost completely lost it last night, and went on an incredible tirade. I do not like to use the word “eviscerate” lightly, but I feel it is warranted in this case.

At this point, the Twitter account for Time Warner must have felt their stock price falling, so they got involved and tried to de-escalate the situation. It did not work out for them. Colin Jost was not about to be placated.

I’m assuming at this point that Time Warner attempted to Direct Message him and ask to talk it over with him out of the public view. Colin Jost stabbed them in the back.

The rant stopped there, but the retweets did not. Jost retweeted about 40 other followers, responding to him with their own complaints about Time Warner. Even Verizon FIOS got involved, backing Jost’s plan to encourage everyone to switch from Time Warner to FIOS.

Honestly, if Fios were available in my city, I’d switch today.

Also, Colin Jost just earned +100 credibility points.
