6,045 days ago I joined 𝕏.
It’s truly a marketplace of ideas and the best social network ever invented.
What I love about 𝕏
I love its openness. Facebook always felt closed. Blogs felt open. And Twitter always felt like mini-blogging. 𝕏 was able to retain this until today.
I love that it’s a marketplace of ideas. It connects like-minded people into a hive mind, to share ideas and create new neural pathways.
I love that it’s realtime. It’s the quickest was to share information on Earth, and my #1 news source.
I love that it’s a level playing field. It’s the only place where regular people, celebrities and public figures can interact on the same level. The best example is @elonmusk, who is known for interacting with the regular folk.
I love that user feedback is taken seriously. All users can post feedback to the x bugs & features community, and many improvement have already been implemented.
Shoutout to Enrique (@enriquebrgn), Andrea (@ehikian), Haofei (@wanghaofei), Ishan (@ishanrc), Mike (@cambridgemike) and Patrick (@ptraughber). You guys rock! 🤘

Here are some pieces I shared over the years
𝕏 – The Everything App
Here’s a paragraph I wrote from “Twitter is a public utility“:
“I might be mistaken (and I hope that I am), but I don’t believe Twitter will ever find a similarly strong business model as Google or Facebook.
So while I couldn’t be more excited about Twitter the product, I am not similarly excited about Twitter the business.”
But now, things have changed. Elon Musk runs it. And the team and culture have changed dramatically.
I now believe that 𝕏 (the company) has a very bright future ahead. And I’d happily become a shareholder if I had the opportunity.
I can’t wait for it to become The Everything App! 💪🏻
