The story of CES as told by tweeted cries for help

It’s safe to return to Twitter: The Consumer Electronics Show is mercifully winding down.

The tech trade show, which takes over Vegas once a year and attracts swarms of techies, media and agency types, has become an unstoppable force of nature, obliterating all in its path. As the week has gone on, we’ve detected that many attendees are thinking twice about their decision to “drink from the firehose” of tech. Here’s a selection of CES tweets that are really just cries for help.
