For me, Twitter threads often serve as a way to interactively explore concepts and deconstruct the norms of society in ways that are impossible to do through normal media, including blogs like this. The brevity forced by the 140-character limit and the atomic nature of the tweets allows for thought to be broken down and deconstructed itself with feedback from the perspectives of others. Many times, my threads serve as an interactive first draft of sorts for the content I publish here.
For anyone interested in perusing these streams of consciousness, I will list some of the more significant ones chronologically here.
