Best Longform Twitterings, 2014
Posted on December 26, 2014 Posted by John Scalzi 4 Comments
I spent a lot of time on Twitter in 2014, partly because I traveled quite a lot this year, and partly because Twitter is just kinda fun. Every now and again I would go on a multitweet spree on something, or have an interesting twitter conversation, which I would then repost on Whatever for posterity, and for the amusement of the folks who don’t actually use or enjoy Twitter. Here are some of them. They range from silly to serious, i.e., pretty much like Whatever itself. Enjoy. These are in (somewhat) chronological order.

Also, in case you don’t know, you can find me on Twitter here.
Only two or three actually show when I follow the links. Pity. But I got to see several of them as they played out, so I guess I shouldn’t whine.
I’ve enjoyed revisiting these. You must be a hoot to live with.
It’s pretty weird to see them laid out like this, when it’s a sophisticated method breaking Twitter. That’s one thing that I enjoy about Twitter is that people keep finding novel ways to use it.
Is “Longform Twitterings” an oxymoron or an Irish bull?
