Exclusive networks of teens are making thousands of dollars by selling retweets.
Personally, I’m impressed that “exclusive networks of teens” know what TweetDeck is that long after Twitter has basically forgotten about it.
I joined Twitter in 2007. I come in with a Twitter ID below the 1 millionth user mark (678,213 to be precise). This doesn’t make me any better or worse at using the platform. In fact, I haven’t changed how I use it at all in the last decade (a reason why I don’t have much of a following). I still post whatever drivel comes to mind, like this picture my niece drew. Poorly thought jokes about politics or whatever in on my TV at the moment or (because I love cliches) what I’m currently eating fill my feed. Twitter, however, has changed around me.
The introduced native linking to other profiles via the “@” sign. They introduce native retweeting so that we no longer had to wrap them with “RT @_____ ‘’.” Hashtag linking. Discussion threads. Native photo uploading. Native search. GIF searching and posting. Character limit increases throughout. All of these things layered on to the simple idea of microblogging.
In doing that, yes, I think it’s fair to say that our dark timeline plays a part of that with all of our characters. So, you’ll get to see a little bit of some of the fun that we had in seeing that in the past. So, that’ll all sort of come to a head for our finale.
Any plans this vernal equinox? Might we suggest you head down to Flicker Theater and Bar on Washington St for a little post-modern folk action? Jesse Payne hails from Birmingham and proclaims that he “paints songs on paper canvas and audio waves”. So, a full night of hot folk action is sure to be had by all. But, really, who could go wrong with a song about Wes Anderson?
