The reaction on the Twitter and Facebook back channels to Apple’s big iPhone 4 announcement yesterday ranged from adulation to envy to a bit of snark – but mostly the fanboys (and fangirls) were out in force.

Before the big announcement:

In the keynote, great seats, I have never seen it so crowded. Madness!

As Steve Jobs announces the features of iPhone 4:

I may no longer carry a point & shoot camera. #wwdc #fb

Finally, Flash on the iPhone. #newcamera

iMovie for iPhone in HD! Way cool

Scobleizer

Pretty much iMovie on iPhone lets you do what you can do with iMovie on your Mac. Is Apple moving toward getting rid of the Mac?

Gartenberg

iMovie on iPhone shows what u can do when you have an end to end experience. #wwdc

Moving into seriously wicked cool territory. #iMovie #wwdc

iPhone OS 4 is now iOS 4. This is huge. Not a phone play. This is a platform play for connected devices. Watch closely.

iPhone 4. This is why I haven’t bought a camera or HD video camera yet. So glad I kept the faith. Apple destroys competition again. Ace.

The iMovie demo was really sick. I wonder how flexible it will be in terms of user-created titles and such

IMHO one of the biggest features of iOS4 are the multiple Exchange Accounts! That is really awesome! #iOS4 #WWDC2010

This retina display + camera system upgrade + HD video shooting & editing is a mobile blogger’s dream.

Oh, threaded e-mail, how I love you. #wwdc

OMG “That’s iPhones, iPod touches, and iPads, 100 million. There is definitely a market for your applications.”

While some poked a little fun at the grand announcement:

And, ironically, the winners of all this: Gizmodo. Meta liveblogging wins in the end, huh?

If I say it enough, maybe it will become true… Verizon Verizon Verizon Verizon Verizon Verizon Verizon Verizon Verizon Verizon Verizon

In other news, Apple invents new wireless networking standard just for them to use on stage at keynotes #ourwayorthehighway

RockBandAide

“Say goodbye to withering crops, we now have push notifications!” There is no reason anyone should understand this statement. #WWDC

And some alluded to current (or former) competitors:

Bing? Srsly? Now it’s war.

JackLoftus

Unintentional funny: Apple employees telling developers to refrain from using flash during the WWDC keynote.

xenijardin

RIP, FLIP.

Tick tock, time running out for carrier announcement/non-announcement… Big news. And if “none” will be a massive sales boost for #Android!

nathanfreitas

Video calls… big deal. I can do this w SIPDroid already, even over a VPN.

Remember when Microsoft ruled everything & Apple was little company creatives bought from? HA HA HA HA HA!!! #suckitMicrosoft

Or expressed frustation at AT&T:

LOL – from the TWiT stream: “I think Steve Jobs just went over his 2 Gig limit”

Dayvid Jones (from Facebook)

The new iPhone better be great, it cost at least $1000 a year to keep it running.

toddbarnard

So you’re gonna send that 10 minute long, 720p at 30fps HD video of your kitten as an MMS attachment over AT&T wifi bandwidth cap? Good luck!

Baratunde (from Facebook)

My favorite part of the Steve Jobs keynote: network fails. crowd yells VERIZON!

In the end, the fanboys (and fangirls) remained awed:

@Scobleizer get ready for overnight 2.0

$10 says Apple is planning to leave 1 Infinite Loop for a new HQ at the corner of Technology and Liberal Arts.

The iPhone 4 looks more interesting in person than in photos. I think it’ll get strong reactions one way and the other.

Lots to do tonight. Clean up my room, install 4.0 GM, paint nails, laundry, organize stuff, order stuff online, investigate stuff…

@ceoSteveJobs: Everyone seems to be overlooking today’s most important announcement: Farmville. For iPhone.
