Maybe partly on Twitter it seemed more appealing because there was a large class of “impersonal” accounts operating on the network and seeding news from outside: News organisations, officials, etc. Quoting commentary from such entities feels different from picking apart an individual.
I wonder if there should have been more distinction between “posts” and “comments” — could have distinguished between sharing original thoughts (roots of conversation) vs people’s direct interpersonal discussion.
