    Here are a couple of things that still need to be tested.

    First url rewriting need to work correctly.

    Finally, tags must work: #test #yolo #drugs

    Listen up gun nuts.

    I grew up around guns. I am a gun owner and a die hard second amendment supporter. But it's time to ban semi-automatics, fully semi-automatics, ammunition, assault guns with too many magazine clips, shoulder things that go up, and guns designed to kill people. That's just common sense. After that you can have all the guns you want! After a thorough psychological evaluation, of course. And you can even go down to the local precinct to visit your gun under strict supervision whenever you want if you have a valid reason.

    Don't get me wrong. I'm all about the second amendment. The right to bear arms is extremely important to me, but isn't time we abolish the second amendment? Isn't it a little outdated? Well regulated militia. Why does anyone even need a gun?

    I'm not saying we ban guns. Fucking Christ you gun obsessed psychopaths, get a grip. Calm down, no one is coming for your guns. No one is saying ban all guns. I'm just saying that we ban the guns that can kill people. No one, and I repeat no one has ever suggested that we ban guns or abolish the secondment amendment. I don't even know where you evil baby killing monsters come up with that one.

    No one is a bigger supporter of gun rights than me. Common sense. Why won't you compromise?

    I like ASCII art. I like ASCII art. Here is a centipede:

    What if Twitter encouraged meaningful discourse rather than sound bites and self-promotion? That was my question back in 2009.

    My fear at the time was that Twitter would have a negative impact on society by leading people away from nuanced discussion. Subjects that are worth talking about just can't be fleshed out with such a tiny character limit. Much like a JPEG degrading as it gets re-shared and compressed over and over, Twitter's format crushes a conversation's depth, ambiguity, and granularity, leaving us with little more than the rhetorical version of a fart.

    Of course that was well before the hate mobs, the incessant flame wars between "libtards" and "nazis," and the unbelievable level of corporate and government mass surveillance that we enjoy today.

    Now, a decade later, the original question still stands, and a corollary: could a social media company succeed by behaving in an ethical manner, fostering real bonds between human beings? #first #yolo

    Thanks to Annelyse for helpfully pointing out that I accidentally granted all users admin_delete privileges... by deleting all my posts. Yay.
