Dylan Field explained on twitter, followed by plenty of serious thought from the design community...but let's face it, we're here for the memes! Let's go:

Some serious thoughts:
Congrats to you and the team. I love to see an exit for so many employees. That’s a life changing moment for them.

I think a lot of designers backed Figma in the early days because it wasn’t Adobe. So I suspect a lot of designers are feeling slightly let down and betrayed about now.

Long story short:
Have a nice day!
Hope you enjoyed this curation, and remember to read this before taking advice from twitter design gurus that comment on the acquisition 😜.
One of the best article i've read in a long time. How can you be so accurate @robdiazzz? I am a "Liker Retweeter" for now, currently working on becoming a "List Maker" 👀. https://t.co/lDn64XpgKr
