Daring Fireball: Fleets, We Hardly Knew Ye

Daring Fireball: Fleets, We Hardly Knew Ye started with…

I’ll resist dunking on Twitter for this, because I think it’s better for Twitter to try more new ideas — even if many wind up abandoned — than to find itself paralyzed by indecision over how to evolve the platform.

…and pivoted to…

Fear of letting the other side achieve its goals when they’re in the majority has resulted in a legislature that can barely pass anything — and that hasn’t worked out well.

The filibuster is a bad idea. It’s OK to kill it and move on.

Twitter for iPhone Cursed Itself

My recent review of Twitter of iPhone:

Twitter for iPhone was perfect and life was flawless until someone got that glint of pride.
Thinking they could be better than perfec, they went too far and were cast down from the light to wallow in agonizing hell for all eternity to consider the folly of its pride.
many apologies to John Milton
Twitter! Tear down this banner!
apologies to Ronald Reagan RIP
