Dan Porter, CEO of Draw Something’s OMGPOP has, strangely, gone out lashing against ex-employee Shay Pierce on his Twitter account.

Shay Pierce was a programmer on the indie development team and refused to take up contract with Zynga who recently acquired the company. He wrote a piece on Gamasutra about it last week.

In his Twitter rant, Porter ridiculed Pierce for his decision, calling him “selfish” and the “weakest one on the whole team”.

Is this what sudden shot of money does to you?

    Shay Pierce had a right to not sign a new contract if he did not agree to its terms. This would make him, at least, morally the strongest of the team.

    Dan Porter is cry baby.
