We honestly never thought this day would come…. Megan Morrone is finally gone, stating she was tired of being in front of the camera. We were tired too, Megan. TotalDrama sincerely apologizes there hasn’t been more site updates but TWiT has taken its toll on this editorial team. And it appears we weren’t the only ones.
Following a fairly uneventful few months at TWiT we learned that another employee decided to pack up his things and leave the TWiT Eastside Studios, otherwise known as the Shoebox of Despair.
But what can we say about Megan Morrone that hasn’t been already editorialized ad nauseam? The people who love her will say it was her time to move on to greener pastures. Others will say she spent 4 long years meticulously planning her escape from TWiT. But who are we kidding? She was fucking retarded and knew absolutely nothing about technology.
I think you tagged the wrong Megan Morrone. The Megan Morrone you tagged has no business being at RSA! 🤣 pic.twitter.com/9KK5SxIsMn
God’s little miracles will all be dearly missed at TWiT in the coming year; as their contributions have been legendary. Some of them will appear on “Before You Buy,” but most will find places as outside producers. Here they are: the Roll Call of TWiT’s finest. They have all gone on to a better place:
Justin Robert Young
Shannon “Snubs” Morse
Chad Johnson “OMGChad”

Thanks for all the laughs, the tears, the joy, the pain, the sorrow, the late nights, the early mornings, the hair in a bun, the hair over your shoulder, pretending you liked Leo, faking a smile when he harassed you…for everything you’ve ever done and everything you’ll ever be, do, think, taste, smell, eat and drink. Our hats are off to you, the TWiT Departed. You are the gems in the crown of the tech world. The shining beacons of truth and creativity. Oh. Wait. They already hired your replacements? Well that was fast.

Google Wave fan and bumbling genius Gina Trapani is going to be alone with her thoughts soon—and that’s a good thing. Perhaps she can take some time to organize her brain. Gina recently announced that she’s shuffling off “This Week in Google” to focus on running her useless Twitter business. Jeff Jarvis of course groaned like a jilted grandmother and Leo said that Gina is going to be missed because he loooooooooves her so much.
In honor of Gina’s tenure on TWiG, here’s one last look ’n’ listen at her groundbreaking Google insights. She’s quite a keeper—too bad Leo didn’t pay her enough to have her stick around.
I think in 10-15 years we really could have maybe learned a thing or two from her. Or not…I can’t decide. Uh…Well, I guess. Maybe not. Or…
