This is not a diss on older technologies, but I do think it speaks to the idea that Twitter's framework is a more universally relevant structure for communicating than we give it credit for. In other words, Twitter as we know it probably could have worked in some form many years before it was invented because the structure itself is unique, effective, and practical for a broadly usable type of communication.
Revel in the marvels of the universe. We are a collective of forward-thinking individuals who strive to better ourselves and our surroundings through constant creation. We express ourselves through music, art, games, and writing. We also put great value in play. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
