…academics, acquaintances, activists, actors…

Looking through some of my old twitter threads and having been struck by a whim, I think I shall turn one of them into a blog post to enjoy it all over again.

Here’s one from the beginning of 2017 when I was getting more into Twitter and revelling in the variety (I like mixed herbs) of the people I found there, and was inspired to alliteration (always a sign of stimulation) in the form of this celebratory ode. It appears that I never quite finished it because the last few letters of the alphabet eluded me. Perhaps rolling it out again will breath new life into it.

As a suggestion, feel free to read this in a hollow, metallic, rhythmic chant with a southern US twang, like a solemn call to arms.

Perhaps you will see yourself represented in the list.

The muse strikes – I’m going to do a thread: alliteratively celebrating the weird beautiful diversity of the humans I follow on Twitter.

So Long Tumblr, It Was Fun

Just Because You Are Naked ...

Tumblr as a social media platform was a predominantly visual medium. While it supported textual posts, scrolling through your Tumblr feed was a cascade of images created, curated and shared through blogs you followed. Like Instagram, you could scroll through images of your favorite blog. Unlike Instagram, Tumblr’s interface actively encouraged reblogging – allowing others to curate their own collection of favorites and share their curation with others. The joy of Tumblr was discovering new art, artists and bloggers through an ever-expanding circle of like-minded curations of imagery.

One of the things that distinguished Tumblr from Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest was the platform’s lack of censorship. This allowed users to post sexually explicit photos, videos, art or writings. In fact, it was a bit of a running joke that Tumblr was the place to go if you wanted to view porn.
