The Thread Is Dead

Angelina Chapin for the Cut:

For many, the group chat has shifted from a necessity to a nuisance since we’ve resumed boarding planes and meeting at bars. People told me they’ve been tapping that mute button, ghosting threads like they are bad dates, and, in the most brazen of cases, breaking up with their group chats altogether.

Seconded. One on one chats remain, but big groups? Fell of a cliff.
