I try to imagine what a chic Twitter would look like. Compared to Instagram, TikTok (even YouTube) Twitter is a conspicuously anti-aesthetic platform. Some of the best accounts operate pseudonymously, barely a selfie or a fit pic in sight. On Twitter, connecting to your social graph is an option, not a necessity. It’s a place for meeting your idols or total randos.
There’s a reason a small batch anonymous account is called an alt. It’s a schizo break from the doldrums of daily life, a launch into the digital deep blue.
