A comment about Twitter

I was skeptical. But Twitter has been a quite interesting way to encounter other ideas, other people to have interesting discussions with, etc. Yeah, the short tweet length is limiting, but most of my recent articles started out as tweets to other people or was inspired by ideas I encountered there.

My suggestion: Once you sign up on their web interface (and click 'Follow' on me :-), download a Twitter client. Twitter clients add things like hash searches and easy threading of comments. I am using Nambu on the Mac, I have no idea what a good Windows or Linux client would be, but anything's better than Twitter's lame web page.

Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
