@Netflix I’ve been with you for about 6 yrs now. I wish I could tell you how many of your shows you would have to put a gun to my head to watch. Or how many series I started to watch but couldn’t get through them. Really, what’s your business model?#SaveTheOA. #CancelNetflix pic.twitter.com/MEfqlgktqA
