Evolving Twitter, A message from our CEO

Not questioning the validity of the argument in this article, but I am wondering what the natural motivators are to be one’s true self on Twitter relative to, say, LinkedIn. I get the putting your actual face, name, and credentials there is critical for the use case of LinkedIn, but it seems less critical for Twitter which I’ve always equated to an open town hall debate and discussion forum. In a town hall setting, I would not necessarily know the identity of someone ranting about potholes on Main Street, nor the out of towner who responds to say “just get better shocks on your car, jerk”. Perhaps what’s missing is the decorum and environmental pressures to behave nicely that would be present in a town hall setting (signs, code of conduct, reminders by staff, security personnel, etc).

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
