Meet the Apple Store employees who tweet anonymously about their silly clients
FORTUNE — Ever wanted to know what those preternaturally cheerful workers in colored T-shirts really think about working retail for Apple AAPL ?
9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman opened a window on their secret thoughts this week with a feature story about “Apple Anonymous” — an underground society of Apple Store employees who tweet anonymously about life on the floor and behind the Genius Bar.
He profiles one of them: Paul Brown, 29, whose @GeniusBarTales (“Behind the bar. Hating you.”) gathered thousands of followers before he was tracked down and terminated over a year ago for violating Apple’s social media guidelines.
Brown’s output slowed after that, but there are plenty more where he came from. Typical tweet, posted two days ago by @AwksAppleCustomer (a.k.a. @FamilyRoomHero):
