Have We Hit Peak Uber/Lyft?

Just Because you delete Uber from your phone doesn’t mean your account is deleted!

I always thought Uber had shitty business practices and thought the owner was a total fucking penis wrinkle. But now that a high ranking member of the organization remarked that they should start smear campaigns against the company’s critics, I’ve had enough. So I uninstalled the app and tweeted this.
