Opinion: Why those of us on Twitter are saying ‘I was here’

I come to praise Twitter, not to bury it. Yes, I know that’s not how the line goes, but Twitter is a space where we meme, where we take the familiar and remix it, where we make self-referential loops of meta-commentary that somehow — for me anyway — has always added up to so much more than the sum of its parts. Twitter changed my life in ways both sublime and ridiculous, profound, beautiful, professional and sadly often terrible.
