Twitter Premium Accounts Acually an April Fools' Day Joke

First April Fools' Day Tech Trick Revealed: Let the Games Begin

We're still a few days away from the first of April, but the first April Fools' Day gag has surfaced: on Thursday, the site BBSpot published an article reporting that Twitter was going to offer paid premium accounts.

The account levels, dubbed, Owl, were actually a huge gag played on the Twitter and tech community by BBSpot (it was picked up and reported by news outlets)! Well played, BBSpot.

This first joke has reminded me to be vigilant for April Fools' Day tech tricks; what will be this year's RickRoll?
