Wittier Twitter

I never liked Twitter much in the first place. It is, as some wag said, a billion dollar company that should have been an RFC.

But it has been interesting and instructive to watch it destroy itself and to continue to do so. The same with Mozilla, though more sad in that case.

Twitter’s main strengths are now being removed chasing a larger audience that will simply never exist. Capitalism and its growth-at-any-cost prerogative eliminates as many possibilities as it provides.

But no one ever looks at opportunity cost because it can’t be easily quantified.
