Twitter and Corporate Pigeons

by bxrtley

If I now use Twitter to skim headlines and repost my blog, and Minnow has a “Status” style that accomplishes a similar task, could I use my blog to publish meaningful “tweets” on my own platform? Maybe. But it’ll be one lonely tree. Is that a bad thing? Has Twitter transitioned from a diverse flock of birds chirping short, sharp, high-valued posts to becoming gray corporate pigeons fighting for space on a single telephone wire, cooing similar humdrum themes? Has it become a more sophisticated version of its humble beginnings? Perhaps. But being more intentional solves that dilemma.
