Isos, Cestria and Derwentside merged to form Karbon Homes last week. We posted the explanation for this potentially confusing name on Twitter:

So what did the Twitter-verse think? First we had a few GIFs:

Then some people who were genuinely outraged:
Read the reason behind the name. Still think it’s daft, PR-driven nonsense. https://t.co/Cc0VYNlBLg

@PeteApps Oh God. Will they never learn. How much did they pay to come up with that shameful nonsense….

@PeteApps I may have to start a crusade against flim-flam and tommy-rot in the sector. But who is a name for? Most tenants probably don’t care; we do.

The odd joker:
@PeteApps “Karbon says that we can’t turn back the clocks”. Presumably carbon dating passed them by.

Some wondered if the special K branding might catch on:
Surprised more HAs haven’t adopted the modern & distinctive ‘K’. Klarion? Katalyst? L&Kew? Knotting Hill? Amikus Horizon? https://t.co/8ERJv5gBCO

And others were just a little rude:
Oh my… And how many thousands did they pay for this manure? https://t.co/bnMUoiYyEh

So, overall, Closed Circuit says that’s a success.
