    Morgan Stanley Economist Hates Christmas Decorations, Loves 2-Letter Apps

    “…the more I think about it, the more I like the ‘yo’ concept. And it’s not because of the app’s latest feature: you can send a ‘yo’ to the username ‘worldcup’ to receive a ‘yo’ (and nothing else) anytime a team scores a goal.
