Here at BroBible, we constantly shit on the inefficiencies of America’s cable companies. Like we diarrhea all over them. It’s basically a team bonding exercise. If cable companies actually made an effort to do their job, we probably wouldn’t have much to talk about. It’s such an easy thing to rally around because there are zero dissenting opinions. I’d be floored if one person in human history was like “wow, Time Warner/Comcast did what I wanted them to, when I wanted them to do it, at the price they said they would do it at!” It’s almost as unanimous of an opinion as “AIDS suck” or “Matt is the fucking man.”

That’s why it really hit home when SNL’s head writer and “Weekend Update” anchor, Colin Jost, absolutely shredded Time Warner Cable on Twitter for speaking with at least 25 customer service representatives and still not getting cable. Things got so hopeless, that a Time Warner rep suggested he switch cable companies. That’s like going to a restaurant and the waitress being like, “ya our food sucks balls, probably better off going to Chili’s instead.” (Of course you’re better off going to Chili’s, it’s a great family establishment with reasonable prices and an inviting atmosphere.)

Take a look at Jost’s extremely entertaining Twitter rant and Time Warner’s sheepish response to make things right.

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.jsLooks like Time Warner took a break from actively ignoring its customers to chime in on the matter. I’ll grab the popcorn.

I was most surprised Time Warner responded in a  timely manner. I thought they would just tweet back “Please expect a response from us within 5-55 business days.” I guess that’s a small victory for TWC.

But since I’m a solution-oriented type dude, I think I found the hero America deserves. Call him up from the minors.
