Last night, at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in Northern California, a gunman opened fire, killing three and wounding 15. The gunman was killed on the scene by police, but authorities are still searching for a possible second suspect.
The shooting quickly caught tracking on social media, with peoplesharing information from the shooting, videos from the scene, and their thoughts and prayers.
One person who posted about the killings was Dilbert creator Scott Adams.

If you were a witness to the #GilroyGarlicFestivalshooting please sign on to Interface by WhenHub (free app) and you can set your price to take calls. Use keyword Gilroy, Adams wrote.
WhenHub is Scott Adams app; he describes himself as chief strategy officer on Twitter. It appears to be a video interface chat which users can sign on to and request compensation from as an adviser.
Naturally, in the wake of a mass shooting, use keyword Gilroy read like a podcast promo, and Adams, who was apparently using a mass shooting as a way to increase subscribers to his product, earned some ire.
Well that's one way to respond to the Gilroy shooting…

So instead of calling the police or fleeing during a still ACTIVE shooting you propose they download your app (thus clogging network and other peoples legit needs to contact rescue), go through some name your price exercise, and then wait for ZERO news folks taking them up?
