Twitter Threads

Last Update: 2020-11-12

I recently went through the interesting exercise of reviewing past tweets. In the process I was surprised to discover many threads of thought which I’d forgotten1.

Reading them sparked old ideas that I hadn’t visited in a while. I’m starting this post to cache a collection of these threads. The hope is that this will serve as a reminder to explore them at a later time. Or perhaps an interested reader such as yourself will reinterpret them through the lens of your own experiences, and combine them in new ways :)

I expect this to be a live document that I’ll occasionally update with more recent threads as time permits.

  1. Considering the counterfactual for a moment, what would have happened with these ideas had they not been tweeted? Would they have been reencountered upon at a later time, or simply lost to the sands of time? [return]
