PS, RIP "retweet." Oh also? Welcome to Twitter photo-tagging. :/
Internet: There is still plenty of time to consider not posting that hilarious April Fools’ Day prank you’ve been working so hard on.

To anyone who'd ever met anyone who worked at Goldman Sachs, it was obviously fiction, as in, made-up, invented, concocted.
