It’s been less then two hours since we reported the news that Amazon has acquired the popular online reading community Goodreads and Twitter users are already lamenting the news.
Susan Kostal tweeted: “sooo sad to see that Amazon bought Goodreads”
Amanda Clark tweeted: “I’m not happy about Goodreads being bought by Amazon! Those bastards took away our like button, and won’t let you mention the author by name.”
Susan McNicholl tweeted: “Not sure I like this at all. Amazon taints everything it touches.”
Carole Blake tweeted: “Prediction: Same people who threaten to quit Facebook will threaten to quit Goodreads. 1.6% will follow through”
