Go Daddy Back Tracks...Withdraws Support of SOPA

Anyone (like myself) who was on Twitter yesterday knew that Go Daddy made a HUGE MISTAKE in coming out in support of SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act).  I myself made several tweets encouraging people to pull their Go Daddy domains and services and park them some place else, and retweeted numerous others tweets from other like minded souls.  The action was fast and furious, and the netizens WERE NOT HAPPY, and Go Daddy Got the breaking news today this....

GoDaddy withdraws its support of the Stop Online Piracy Act
Scottsdale, Ariz., USA

Fri Dec 23, 12:18 p.m. MST: Following a maelstrom of Internet backlash, has withdrawn its support of the Stop Online Piracy Act, +Mashable reports.

Smart move Go Daddy, but have one question...why is it that such a supposed LEADER of the world wide web was SO SLOW TO REACT?  I mean come on, within minutes of your support of SOPA, the Social Media reacted VIOLENTLY, and yet it took you a WHOLE DAY to reverse your yourselves a favor, and go out and hire a few old long haired hippies that understand Social Media, so that you have instant feed back, can react far more quickly IN PROTECTING YOUR BRAND, because trust me, you took a BIG HIT into the millions of dollars.
