Fleet(ing) week, or the further collapse of context on Twitter

Just heard about “fleets,” a more fleeting form of the already fleeting tweet. Unless someone digs it up and frames it out of context to score some clout. Everything online is fleeting unless it serves some negative need.

I can never find stuff I want to find on Twitter. It’s always the old thinking, surpassed, or something that only looks bad out of context, like a popular fursuiter and streamer holding up a Trump 2016 sign with his boyfriend. (he did it in response to someone saying of his Bernie poster: “that’s it, I’m voting Trump”)

This in the same week I find out Twitter is getting rid of its “legacy” JavaScript-free version, scheduled for demolition December 15th. Which I only found out about because I turned JavaScript off.
