9. Sean Parker's Backhanded Steve Jobs Tribute

Date: August 25, 2011

Tweeter: Sean Parker

Tweet: “’We can come to look upon the deaths of our enemies with as much regret as we feel for those of our friends, namely, when we miss their existence as witnesses to our success.’ – Arthur Schopenhauer”

Description: When Steve Jobs publicly stepped down from his longtime post as CEO of Apple, Sean Parker’s above tweet prompted Gawker to question if he was “dancing on Jobs’ professional grave.” The Napster founder and former Facebook president is now an investor and board member at Spotify, an Internet music service that rivals iTunes. Parker confirmed he was speaking about Jobs, but said it was “a gesture of respect for a worthy adversary. Who remains left to challenge us and inspire us when our most powerful enemies move on?”
