Designers speak out on Adobe price controversy

Yesterday we reported that Adobe is openly offering different prices for its Creative Cloud subscription services depending what browser/device they're using. (The fix seems to be to flush your cookies or use private browsing, but that's little comfort for anyone who's already paid a higher price for their subscription).

Here we've picked a selection of tweets, which offer a fascinating insight into the different perspectives on the controversy...
