This is the only thing keeping me on this network: a nice moment that suddenly reveals itself.

It started with a casual conversation being shared...

1/n

RT @shanselman@twitter.com

I explained in several paragraphs what @github@twitter.com is to my niece.
Niece: “So, it’s Nerdstagram?”
Me: “That’s fair.”

Who didn't know his joke could not be understood because of the way twitter handles (domain redirects:

Those serendipity moments used to be more common, or at least I feel like so.
With an ordered timeline, instead of a scrambled one, I would've caught on that. When it happened.

I was hooked to twitter before I could explain why, but I vividly remember when I could: Michael Jackson's death.
For hours, the only source of information was Twitter.

Sharing the actual moment, with a huge number of people was special. It rarely is, now.
