Why I have a huge #writercrush on Slack

I have a growing #writercrush on the Slack creative team. I love their app update notes for the latest 2.0 release don’t disappoint. I love them. I just want to work for Slack just to have an opportunity to contribute to these notes.

Also, this style says a lot about their culture. I’m a big fan and I don’t know anything about what it’s like to actually work there.

Ok, #fanboy moment over. Back to work …

I see most of these fun variations in app update narratives on my devices. This Medium app update narrative is pretty good too:

Very poetic!
