On occasion of Twitter’s recently announced plans

Thesis: algorithmically curating the feed that your service provides is an implicit admission that your service is a net negative for its average user because its signal-to-noise ratio is too terrible to harvest value from it without programmatic aid.

(Behold, Facebook, what “frictionless sharing” hath wrought.)

Or as I quipped recently:

Nobody hangs out on Twitter any more. It’s too crowded.
