henry copeland: More on Twitter as 'loud, stupid, sad,' turning even good ideas bad. pllqt.it/SkGtap
Even smart people start shouting amid Twitter's noise.My feed (full of people I admire) is mostly just a loud, stupid, sad place. Basically: a mirror to the world we made that I don’t want to look into. The common way to refute my complaint is to say that I’m following the wrong people. I think I’m following the right people, I’m just seeing the worst side of them while they’re stuck in an inhospitable environment. It’s exasperating to be stuck in a stream.
