Netflix "explains" Qwikster to NYT reporter, chaos ensues

Talk about shooting yourself in the foot...

Here's the short version:
Netflix had a lot of happy(~ish) customers paying $X/mo for a 2-part service. Then they split that service into 2 "companies" and charged $0.8X for each of those services*. Oh and one of those services they didn't own its corresponding Twitter handle, that didn't help. A month(~) goes by, they see the reactions, and reverse the split.

Much bigger summary without questionable math*
Funnier summary
