Bloomberg Spygate Lights Up Twitter

News that Bloomberg allowed its reporters to access certain Bloomberg Terminal client data sent the Twitter world on fire. Then, news broke that Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan had contacted Bloomberg asking for an explanation, which fanned the flames. Here are some of the most interesting Tweets about the Bloomberg snooping scandal.

1. Spy-berg, Libor-berg?

Editor's Note: Somehow everything-berg for a scandal doesn't have the same ring as everything-gate. Maybe we are more accustomed to -gate attached to every scandal, but who knows.

@joshgreenman:

If this Bloomberg snooping scandal had been the first big modern scandal, we'd have called future scandals ____berg. Like: Lewinskyberg.
