Twitter is such a shit platform to convey ideas and motivations.

You know, that idea you just expressed fits nicely into 140 characters.

I should claim that that was my point, and that I was trying to be satirical.

However, the truth is that for discussing motivations and explaining things, such as Flappy Bird's demise, it really is not the ideal way to convey a message. Nuance and detail are gone on Twitter... and to your point, I was initially downvoted for my comment, presumably because I didn't give sufficient contribution to the converstaion.

I totally agree with you. I just couldn't resist the irony.

Twitter seems best for short-form humor and food-truck locating.
