Get a Blog, I Scream

Phil Gyphord:

I hate Twitter threads that are more than a handful of tweets long. I understand why people write them: it’s where they already are, with all their followers; they don’t have anywhere else to put it; and they enjoy the immediate feedback (and you can get so many likes and retweets from an entire thread!).

But, ugh, I hate reading the things. Get a blog!” I inwardly scream, even as the thread starts to dissolve into the morass of billions of tweets, never to be seen again.

Not only do I hate reading long twitter threads, I hate writing them. A blog is just such a better thing for personal writing.
