After yesterday's bombshell from Noah Glass, the Twitter co-founder conveniently erased from the company's foundation myth, Evan Williams, the man who fired him, half-assed an apology, tweeting, "It's true that @Noah never got enough credit for his early role at Twitter. Also, he came up with the name, which was brilliant." Waiting six years to say thanks for the name of a $5 billion company you pushed him out of? #Ouch. [Evan Williams/Twitter]
