Of Twitter and Neuroses

by Wells

That said, what about conversation between two users who I do follow? Well, that can be fun, to a point. But what about when it’s not fun? There is no mute button for you fucking people. Our best option is to unfollow one of you chatty cathies to opt out of the entire conversation. But I don’t want to do that because I follow you because you’re brilliant and charming and I love what you have to say. Our second best option is to get all passive aggressive and then feel bad about it and then get over it because sometimes, you just gotta speak your mind.

I read somewhere that etiquette states that any @reply conversation that goes past two tweets needs to be taken to direct messages.  Sure, or, you know, a phone.
