The (Editable) Thread of Threads

I'm going to be mocked for this, and I don't care.

I've been spending way too much time on Twitter, and - to be honest - Twitter's not the best place for someone as longwinded as I am. The maximum length of a Tweet is 280 characters, and that doesn't work well for me. I'm not Seth Abramson - I can usually get a simple concept across in less than 280 Tweets - but I'm usually closer to 280 words than 280 characters.

Twitter is also a little ephemeral and finding things again isn't simple. A "thread of threads" is one way to track that, but you can't edit posts and you can't organize things, so they turn into untrackable threads of their own really quickly.

So I'm going to try this - an editable index post.

The (Editable) Thread of Threads:

Links will usually be to the first post in a thread; if the thread is converted to a blog post, a separate link will be added.
