“I hate flash mobs. One once kicked my door down and forced me to update my Adobe”

Does Adobe Flash have flash mobs associated with it? A joke was posted on Twitter on January 31, 2013:

“I hate flash mobs. One mob actually busted my door down and forced me to update my Adobe.”


Wikipedia: Adobe Flash
Adobe Flash (formerly called Shockwave Flash, often just called Flash) is a multimedia software platform used for production of animations, rich Internet applications, desktop applications, mobile applications and mobile games. Flash displays text, vector graphics and raster graphics to provide animations, video games and applications. It allows streaming of audio and video, and can capture mouse, keyboard, microphone and camera input.

Artists may produce Flash graphics and animations using Adobe Animate. Software developers may produce applications and video games using Adobe Flash Builder, FlashDevelop, Flash Catalyst, or any text editor when used with the Apache Flex SDK.
