RIP #Dickbar 06/03/2011 to 30/03/2011

The Dickbar, in case you missed our chat in the podcast, on the site, and around Twitter, is the poorly implemented trending topics bar in Twitter’s iPhone app. At least it was, until today, when Twitter decide to take the Dickbar out back and flog it to death.

As of today Dickbar is dead. Twitter is now Dickbar free—for now. We don’t have much to say about it, but we thought you would like to know.

We’re not sure how long you’ll be able to live in a world without having promoted trends and accounts shoved in our face while you hang out on Twitter, but you might want to embrace it for as long as you can.

Like Myke said in his review, I wouldn’t mind personalized trends based on my followers.  If Twitter can’t pull that off, I’d rather pay them a couple bucks a month to never, ever see another #winning trend again.

What about you? Did you get over the #dickbar, or are you happy that it’s finally end of life?  Let us know in the comments.
