Hey, your story was shard in a response to my post (sharing mine for anyone who comes across this comment: https://medium.com/@NateyBakes/how-twitter-can-grow-its-user-base-9d83f9e5e399).
I don’t expect any sort of compensation for my idea, but I hope they adopt it, and if so, some personal acknowledgement would be satisfactory (on a private basis).
Pretty fucked what happened to you next though, man. Hate seeing suppression and censorship on Twitter. That book Hatching Twitter makes the philosophy behind the platform's creation seem so noble, but seeing what’s happened to so many prominent users is disappointing.
