Harry Marks in a beautifully written essay:
Twitter has devolved into just another place for commercials and we’re partly to blame
Marks’ writing is fantastic on this post and he sneaks in so many little nuggets of truth that it’s hard not to nod your head along while reading it.
He also makes a good point: the nerds that are now mad about Twitters direction, really had their heads in the sand about the direction that Twitter was headed in. We knew where the service was going, but ignored it — hoping instead that Twitter would do right by “us.” The time to push back and ask for change was not a few weeks ago, it was a couple of years ago.
We were late.
