Part 1 in the saga known as Love Letters to Jack (Dorsey) in which Twitter emerges from bird puberty and tries to grow in spite of “parental” interference
I’m worried about, you know…us. We just don’t communicate anymore. It started out so great. We had our little bird. Such a cutie, and so engaging. Then he went through bird puberty, trying to find himself. We were at a loss—how to help him realize his life purpose until, OMG, he was rescued by a politician! Then he soared. And everyone, all over the world, was saying “Follow that bird!” Our little fledgling. But then something happened, and although thousands of people were still saying that, Junior’s friends silently fell away.
Now, as responsible parents we need to get involved again. You need to get involved. I mean really involved. Like don’t-be-an-ostrich involved. Man up to this like a condor and figure out how you can make Junior soar again. I will help you because I’m more right-brain and I listen to his friends (and detractors). I know what they want.
