How to Make Your Own Twitter

Letters to the Editor: Elon Musk runs Twitter. You don’t like that. So ignore Twitter. The rest of the media are also ignoring Twitter, because people are talking about it.

Here is an idea. Why don’t you make your own Twitter, an entirely Twitter-free Twitter. No jokes or political posts allowed. You’d have to write in code to do it. Just your basic status update would be: “I don’t have a job.” “I don’t have a girlfriend.” “I don’t have a cat named Feline.”

Don’t get me wrong. People keep writing about Twitter. It’s not like it’s on a back burner. But it’s not being used.

Here’s why:

1. Only one side can dominate. No matter what you think of Twitter, it’s not a democratic platform.

2. It’s not free.

3. It’s not democratic.

4. It allows the wrong people to dominate it, and it’s become a partisan tool.

How do you go back and forth in Twitter? It’s called a conversation, and the only people who can have a conversation with each other are people who think the same thing but write differently. In the past, people used to have conversations about the news. It was a lively, and very human, discussion that would be more interesting then Twitter, because everyone kept coming up with new angles of thought. That’s what happened in the late 20th century. But Twitter has become a closed club, where the conversation is about people who share a set of beliefs or a set of political affiliation’s.

On the other hand, people also use Twitter to promote themselves and to keep in touch with each other. That’s what happened to the Internet in the 1990s and early 2000s. People would use the services to write self-serving messages to themselves. It became increasingly commercial, and it didn’t have much value, as there was no point in having it because it wasn’t giving you any new information about the world, it was just your own self-promotion.

You can’t have a conversation without giving away some information, and the better you talk
