Fort Worth City Councilman Joel Burns had a legitimate reason to be angry at the Weather Channel. The cable channel’s iPhone app, which displays photos of the city for which it’s giving the forecast as the background, shows pictures of Dallas when you look up Fort Worth’s weather.
Burns tweeted at the @weatherchannel handle multiple times over the past few weeks, threatening to delete the app if it didn’t start displaying photos of Fort Worth. Eventually, he tweeted that he had deleted the app, with a picture to prove it.

The Weather Channel replied to his tweet with what reads like a sarcastic snipe at the councilman. Burns is openly gay and made headlines with an impassioned “It Gets Better” speech at a 2010 council meeting.
