I probably agree with the author of this piece on many things, but this article felt a whole lot like the shouting that drove me off Twitter about the same time she left.

I was never the target of right-wing trolls, but I did see many people in my Twitter-sphere tweet non-stop about it with such vitriol that I’m not sure I was getting less aggregate exposure.

I think the problem is that Twitter is a platform for evolutionary selection of slogan-based-dialog. I kind of imagine two armies standing across a battlefield from one another carefully deciding which volley of pithy digs to throw at one another.

This article feels like a rehash of all that—generating, like Twitter, more heat than light.
