Why Twitter’s Dying (And What You Can Learn From It)
umair haque

Provocative title and interesting perspective, but your insights are anecdotal at best & you really need to back this up with some actual evidence & research.

There are productive sub-communities on Twitter that organize around hashtags especially in the medical community. We use it for #patientchat every other week and we don’t have any abuse within those communities but rather a mature, emotionally supportive discourse amongst cancer survivors and other chronic disease individuals. Jack Dorsey — contact me if you want to talk about these communities more.

I have used Twitter for several years and have never experienced abuse. I know it exists because I’ve read and viewed tweets like the gamergate issues. But to say the entire platform is failing because of a subset of bullies is not accurate; to also say that Twitter is doing nothing about it, is just irresponsible.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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