2020 was the time of the Late Majority. Enjoy tweeting with the laggards.

Twitter peaked years ago.

The date of death was marked the day they banned Donald Trump.

The issue isn't the politics or the company, the issue is that it's established and the magic that got it to this point is gone. The same was true and will be true for everything.

We're in a new era and Twitter was for the 2010s.

All the good tweeters are gone. And in place, are the uncreative types that were afraid of tweeting until literally everyone else was doing it.

Building in public on Twitter was interesting years ago when Pieter Levels and others started it.

Unfortunately, the people that picked up the torch have no swag and nothing interesting about them.

Their Twitter threads are bedazzled with emojis and 👉 whitespace and indentation, only to say things utterly banal.

Wise men speak because they have something to say; Fools because they have to say something.

2020 was the time of the Late Majority.

Enjoy tweeting with the laggards.
