.@t re http://cog.gd/eo That's called having a website. You use it when you have long-form thoughts to share you don't trust to Twitter.

.@t This isn't Chopin we're dealing with. Most tweets are meant to perish, like words in a phone call.

@zeldman Ahem...ALL tweets are meant to perish. And if they're not meant to, they should anyway. #pollution #sustainability

.@andyrutledge I'll buy that. Also, everything we create is transient, and for the most part that is lucky for the universe.

@zeldman @t Totally neurotic but big data is 3.0. So much unstructured data & I give my content to the void, but I can't query against it?

.@glenda So because Twitter loses data, @t gets to inflict awful UX on all his friends who follow him?

.@t You're blogging, just nuttily. Comments of any length that you own and can search on your server? It already exists.

@zeldman @glenda to be fair to @t it is twitter that is inflicting the awful ux of shortened urls, he's just following their pattern

@kevinmarks @zeldman @t Yes, it's the confines of Twitter + their ability to landslide drive_traffic_back towards a site that makes this UX.

.@glenda @kevinmarks @t Oops, the page I clicked thru to doesn't amplify the tweet, it simply repeats it. Bad UX. But there's more.

.@glenda @kevinmarks @t If I want to reply to t's tweet, I can't do it from his site. I have to back-button back to Twitter. Lotta clicks.

@zeldman @kevinmarks Yeah, annoying re: lotta clicking but @t could provide that @ functionality on his site, but he's an edge case.

.@t @zeldman if you want to flexibly tweet and form long messages and whatnot, then you are missing the entire point of Twitter.
