  1. To answer a’s question in good faith, there are two reasons we re-post our tweets here:

    1. To keep a record on our own system of what we were reading, writing, etc.. Depsite the fact that tweets are backed up at the Library of Congress, Twitter is by its very nature ephemeral and I (by my very nature) am an archivist.

    2. We currently have 803 followers on Twitter, and roughly 60,000 readers per month. We want to show those other 59,197 suckaz what they’re missing. Once everybody’s on Twitter, we may stop doing these.
