In response to @Nolanelle on Twitter:

Tip: instead of squishing words together in a tweet, you should use instead for longer posts as it would allow friends & foes to easily read & understand your message.

Twitter’s 140 character limit makes it difficult to convey ideas (forcing people to become pithy) so instead of ditching vowels, using slang (tech, street, etcetera), & mashing words together, just use Medium as your “long form Twitter” (which I occasionally do).

When it comes to politics, philosophy, et al, clear communication is very important!

After all, if people can not clearly understand what you are saying then they will dismiss your point of view before evaluating whether your idea has merit.
