I think of Twitter as a giant brain, where each tweet is a node, and can be connected to dozens of other tweet-nodes, which continue branching off. As @jack once said, “It’s so close to thinking. That to me is the most beautiful thing about Twitter”.
But it’s very hard to model a brain-like system in 2D on a laptop screen, and especially on a mobile screen.
I’m excited for how we will interact with a platform like Twitter in 3D, with the advent of VR and AR.
