AdAge: AD BIZ IS YUKKING IT UP WITH THE #AGENCYLIFE HASHTAG

Rupal Parekh muses about the twitter hashtag shitstorm Adland caused, and wonders if it reveals more about the current industry morale than intended.

Below is a selection of them. That last tweet has to make you wonder about the state of morale in the business today.
