As people delete or abandon their Twitter accounts due to its changes related to content ownership etc. that begin today, September 29th, I thought I’d look back at some of the content I’ve provided over the years since I started tweeting back in December of 2009. How many times did I tweet? Over 13,000 times. While there is something true about wasting time on the internet, I’d like to believe I was at least attempting to educate people with my posts as a frustrated (and failed) teacher. I’m a curious person. It’s natural for me to share what I’ve learned, especially when it comes to our built environment. I’m always hoping somebody gets something out of it, and might have a new appreciation for architecture and history. Plus I learned so much from other people on what we liked to call “Architecture Twitter.” I’m forever grateful to everyone who shared their expertise and geekiness with me.
It’s really sad that musk seems intent on burning the billions he paid. Are you on any of the alternatives?
