After a day of unbridled rage, Emerson students marched on over to MIT, banged down the door and began immediately collaborating with students on TrumpTacks, a brand-new social media platform that will be used only to post negative things about Donald Trump. The leading Republican presidential candidate has been in the news all day, after calling for “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States” yesterday.
“We’re excited about where we’re going,” said Emerson sophomore Jay Cullendoria. “Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vine, you name it – they just simply aren’t enough places for us to bash Trump on. It all needs to be in one place, free of puppy videos and selfies.”
Emerson students say that the MIT students, who were working on developing revolutionary medicines and self-sustaining robots, were blissfully willing to drop everything and work on this new project.
“We are always happy to work with Emerson students,” said Faith Chan, an MIT student and synthetic neurobiology major at the prestigious Cambridge institution. “They’ve actually been doing most of the work. They’ve all been motivated enough by this guy to learn software engineering.”
At press time, Emerson students were considering collaborating with Harvard on new apps that would be used primarily to post negative graphics of Ben Carson and Mike Huckabee quotes.
