Shocker of the Century or Marketing Tactic?

Today, the creator of Flappy Bird, Dong Nguyen (@dongatory), announced on Twitter that he will be taking the top app of the App Store down tomorrow. He states that this is because that he can't handle the pressure of having such a popular app.

"I am sorry 'Flappy Bird' users, 22 hours from now, I will take 'Flappy Bird' down. I cannot take this anymore."
- Dong Nguyen
This is strange and could possibly be a marketing tactic. Perhaps to get everyone to download the app before it's taken of the App Store. If you'd like to join those people, you can click here to download the iOS version of the app. It was updated today.
