Fuck Tweetstorms

I am holed up in my office with a migraine and this seems like a perfect time to discuss the most obnoxious and reader-hostile form of self-publishing ever devised, with examples from its patron saint.

The increasing devolution of my timeline into people shouting THREAD and unhelpfully linking the first tweet in the storm is a big part of what finally made me realize that Twitter wasn't doing much for my brain.

(What made this post an even better shitshow was that Google tried to force me to use an Amp link instead of the actual post, because Google, as we all know, is all about openness.)
