“Why I started microblogging”

Published on in 🔗 Links

Bryan Sebesta shares his reasons for microblogging: I often run across things that I’d like to share but don’t deserve their own post. Outside of Twitter, how do I share it? A microblog creates a space for that.. It becomes […] “a way for me to put everything I do online that is visually small — anything small enough not to require scrolling: quotes, links, images, audio files — in one place, and a place on my own site.”
