💬 Scripting News: Sunday, February 17, 2019 Replied to Scripting News: Sunday, February 17, 2019 by an author (Scripting News) Discourse is not Twitter's strength, not because of the thread structure, rather that it’s a write-only community of attention seekers. Most of what passes for discourse is thinly disguised spam. This reminds me of a comment (which ironically was a Tweet) from Alec Couros from a few years ago: I called @biosgraphy on spamming everyone w/ same tweet & was met w/insults. This is how not to promote ur product. pic.twitter.com/JBysneFcIA — Dr. Alec Couros (@courosa) June 7, 2014 There are challenges when it is so easy to just push out comments and critique. This is something Stewart Riddle touches on in a recent interview on the TER Podcast.
