Tried to explain to someone today that Twitter can still be "bad" at the same time it can be enormously relevant. 1/6

Twitter is about 350 million (its actual userbase is not that big) incredibly _addicted_ individuals who _crave_ attention. These people include many celebrities, business leaders, "thought leaders", _huge_ numbers of politicians, world leaders -- these people are pathologically addicted to attention. They will do anything to get it. They _need_ people to hear their voice. 2/6

These people have stuck with Twitter throughout the years, during the harrassment campaign scandals, when Trump was using it as his personal soapbox, and even today, when it's bought and made into a private company by the world's richest individual. 3/6
