MySpace Tom: I Am 'The Guy Who Sold MySpace For $580 Million While You Slave Away Hoping For A Half-Day Off'

Business Insider

Remember MySpace Tom – Tom Anderson, the cofounder of MySpace, who was everyone's first friend on the site?

Maybe this picture will jog your memory:

These days, Tom is retired.

On his site, he says he is "Retired and traveling the world taking photos."

Sounds nice.

It has not mellowed him out.

Tom is a big fan of Instagram, and earlier today he tweeted: " People keep asking, so I'll say it: fear over Instagram's terms change is ridiculous... Get real folks!"

To this, one of Tom's Twitter followers replied: "says the guys that was not able to keep a social network alive."

That's not a very polite thing to say, and Tom answered in kind.

He said: " says the guy who sold myspace in 2005 for $580 million while you slave away hoping for a half-day off."

Tom's Twitter follower has now quit the service.

Discovering this, Tom tweeted: " does that mean I win?   "

Oh boy.

(Mashable first spotted this nasty exchange.)
