My big gripe with Twitter is that, for the most part, the marketing gurus that occupy the channel just regurgitate stale ideas. This is not a unique point of view and I’ve more or less accepted it. I still get value from Twitter, but I have my own way of using it, I build lists, I don’t expect much from the feed, etc.
What’s sad/interesting is that Medium, brought to you by the creators of Twitter, basically feels like the same thing but with more characters. Long form regurgitation. Which also makes it a little easier for folks to pretend like these stale ideas are theirs.
