One person’s history of Twitter, from beginning to end
Mike Monteiro

This was beautiful and sad. I love Twitter. I’m able to keep up with current events coming from a wide range of bi-partisan, intelligent, well-informed people. I’ve never experienced abuse or harassment, but I’ve seen it directed towards plenty of others — women and minorities, especially. I’ve felt the pang of anxiety from using Twitter during major upsetting events. At times, it’s felt addicting, even though it made me unhappy to use. I’ve always considered this a personal problem with the platform, but, increasingly, I’m hearing similar concerns. I’m hoping Twitter can figure out how to clean up its platform. Thanks for sharing.
