That's a low blow and also totally missing the point. We're talking about billboards here, not graffiti.

I am talking about people finding ways to speak. I don't really know what you're talking about anymore. The aesthetics of speech?

Given the nature of speech, aesthetics are inseparable from mechanics. I'm talking about the consequences those mechanics have.

One of the major consequences of the tweetstorm as a mechanism is increased urgency for the audience.

In my post, I was talking about how obnoxious it is to use that increased urgency to tell me to enjoy delicious Slurmβ„’

You didn't acknowledge or engage with that usage either, which seems an awful lot like dismissing it.

And I think importantly, you came at it from a perspective of someone who does has admittedly self-disengaged with the medium.

Perhaps I'll add an edit to address this somehow. I don't want to dismiss it, but engaging with this properly is a _WAY_ longer piece
