He said he would take it down 22 hours after posting the tweet, which went live at 2:02pm EST. Nguyen clarified: "it's not anything related to legal issues," adding "I just can't keep it anymore". There's no exact reason behind Nguyen's reasoning for taking it down, as he also dismissed the idea of selling Flappy Bird, too.

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
