In earlier drafts of this cartoon each stage of Twitter initially had a description, which I’ll post here for posterity:
- The Early Years: Innocent first-person “microblogging”
- The Middle Years: Outrage generation machine
- Later Years: Barely-contained tsunami of disinformation and abuse — but still strangely compelling
- Now: Plaything for deranged billionaire autocrats
Hopefully the artwork in each panel manages to convey these ideas without the explanations.
