    Please stop linking to Twitter ‘long-form’ tweets. It only encourages them.
    What I mean is, it’s exhausting to try to read something in that format. It’s like reading a novel written on index cards. Paul Krugman for God’s sake writes cogent short and popular pieces for the NY Times that are an embarrassment to in-depth discourse, but now, according to your link, he somehow feels he has to use Twitter to reach “readers” who can’t even be bothered to hack through eight hundred words on one screen. There is still a place for long-form essays in this brave new world, isn’t there? Twitter just can’t be the be-all and end-all of social media. Or if it is, I for one want nothing to do with it.
