Ah ok, good advice. See, I don't use the platform enough to even know you could do that. Thank you very much. I will try that.

I agree with the shape of this conversation from both ends and think about it this way: Twitter doesn't need to change necessarily (in this way) because it is a place where real world issues get discussed and debated, but we could all stand to do fewer overall things on Twitter.

I don't think it's necessarily conducive for good discussions or is a safe space as far as the web goes.

Feeling like Twitter was over-used for too many situations helped lead me to create the DEV platform in the first place. The metaphor I have settled on is that DEV is the conference and Twitter is the after party. There's a value to the after party, but if we were all partying 24/7 we'd all end up burnt out and angry.
