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:

A better approach is to use Twitter tech to glue together a variety of apps, each with their focus on one aspect of networked communication and publishing.
Dave, although I have concerns about Twitter, I do like the way webmentions brings comments back to my site. I am not sure if this is what you mean by ‘gluing apps together’?
