Re: Must be a normie thing

Let me try an analogy.

It's Monday morning and a colleague says to you "On Sunday I watched a great film."

If you think the colleague has good taste in films, would you

A) Ask "What's the name of the film?" and request that they not tell you anything about it because you're going to watch it, OR

B) Ask them to give you a detailed summary of the plot and critical review?

The _concept_ behind Twitter was actually great.:

a) nobody can contact you unless you specifically allow them to contact you

b) messages must be short

That structure makes it easy to ignore people and means that you can quite quickly scan and pick out interesting/relevant info and links.

The only problem is that the concept can't make money, so you get adverts/spam.
