I’m a huge fan of Twitter. It’s easily my favorite social media service because it lets me test jokes and material quickly and gives me instant feedback. But I do die a little inside every time I see someone try to use it to “debate” anything more important than the merits of burritos vs tacos (Burritos are by far the superior snack, don’t come at me with that soft shelled shit). Its inherently reductive and reactionary nature, combined with an easy sign-up process and an anti-harassment policy about as effective as a marzipan condom make the service an awful place for any kind of serious discussion. It’s an important promotional tool for any kind of internet-based creative, but it’s also very good at driving people absolutely fucking nuts.
