Chris Evans’ viral tweet about technology had everybody making the same joke – 17 smart takes
Nowadays, everything from fridges to toothbrushes comes with an app and an annoying personality, so it’s understandable that some people have had enough. In an incredibly relatable move, actor Chris Evans – who played the cryogenically frozen Steve Rogers, a.k.a. Captain America – has tweeted an open “letter” to technology and everyone’s making the same joke.
Dear All Technology,
Remember the 90’s when you just WORKED??? I don’t need a ‘smart’ feature on my TV, thermostat, lights, music, refrigerator, security cameras, and f-ing car. You’re a major pain in all of our asses. You’re not worth it.

The post has picked up almost 50k retweets in under 48 hours, with a sizeable chunk of the comments pointing out that it’s a bit of a Steve Rogers thing to say.
hey @MarkRuffalo looks like Cap needs a little tutoring from the science bros.

I know he plays Captain America, but I didn't realize Chris Evans was 100 years old in real life https://t.co/AT1NUwqe35
