In which I rant about Twitter and quoted tweets

I am so annoyed with Twitter’s changes to the quoted tweet that I actually decided to write a blog post about it! I posted a mild rant on Twitter the other day about the change to quoting a tweet: What is with the new quote style on #Twitter iOS app? Is quoted tweet an image??

You could say it is a little reality check with their 140-character comments sharing a joke or reminding me…

I’ll let the Common Craft show explain Twitter in Plain English. You can find me on Twitter as @kmdk. Actually, my debut on Twitter was November 2, 2008 with @stcaccess. It was a move to promote the
