I am beginning to hate twitter threads with a passion. My pinboard bookmarks are full of them and its a little confusing despite diligent tagging. Why can’t folks just have a blog? I always think to myself, scrolling though an epic 50 post thread on a super interesting topic.
The question is rhetorical however as the answer is that the logics of Twitter demand that attention be kept inside the high walls of the network – but still. There are so many places on the internet to hangout.
I keep wondering if RSS readers are too much effort in 2019? or is that there are no decent free options? Rolling your own culture/internet is what it has always been here for …
WordPress is obviously still the least worst option. But I like that I can just embed the whole post below. Perhaps I’m warming to Gutenberg … Perhaps.
