  • Threaded conversations and community

    From the 1970s to 2007 we had threaded conversations through bulletin boards, forums, groups and other centralising discussion points.

    Dear twitter friends I have deleted my main account due to tired I am with twitter and it’s poor performance. I am in other places. I’ll catch you there.

If you spend a lot of time on twitter though after seeing the same retweet too many times you […]
