Twitterverse Reacts to Full Tilt Poker Shutdown

Following this morning's news about Full Tilt Poker losing its gaming license and shutting down global operations, the first reactions, as usual, came via Twitter.

We've done the legwork and assembled the most informative, funny and critical tweets from pro players, media and poker fans.

It might not be credible and it might not be accurate, but at least it's easily accessible.

"Seems like alderney regulatory body (where ftp's license is) just shut down ftp. Wow I think?"

@Tom_Dwan - 6:00am

"Some pretty objective ppl who's opinions I respect are worried now that FT can't payout or find a buyer. Me too more I think about it"

@Tom_Dwan - 7:00am

"I'm pretty sick about all this. Its ridiculous that players weren't paid weeks ago. I feel pretty sick to my stomach."

@Tom_Dwan - 7:00am

"Just heard some rly good news that I'd love to trust, gonna go to sleep instead of making my head explode w/ various extrapolations."

@Tom_Dwan - 7:00am

"I'll try to tweet my take on the situation in a few hours when I wakeup- which'll be more educated, and hopefully contain more good news"

@TexDolly - 11:00am
