👉 Anton Peck on Twitter:
Prediction: 2019 will be a noticable shift back to blogging. Social networks may see a slight hit. People have things to say, ideas to write about, stories to share.

@cdevroe This Anton, blogging since 2000, likes what that Anton has to say. Thanks for sharing.
@antonzuiker Must be the name. 🙂
@cdevroe Although I do find it mildly ironic that he posted it on Twitter.
@adders Not to pick nits, but I do consider Twitter a blogging platform. 🙂
@cdevroe It was once known as microblogging, of course.
@adders @cdevroe One of the things that has always bothered me about calling Twitter/Instagram/et al. “blogging” of any sort is that you can’t go anywhere meaningful from a given post like you can on other blogs—no next or previous post options, no ability to jump to an arbitrary point in time, no archive view; the only thing that you can do is return to the timeline and start scrolling backwards in time from the present (and hope that your browser doesn’t run out of memory adding all of those older posts to the DOM in the process). Maybe it’s only a hang-up for me, but not being able to move easily through time seems contrary to the history of blogging….
@smokey Agreed – for all its roots in Microblogging, Twitter prioritises the feed over the idea of a person and that person’s expression, which is critical to blogging. How often do you visit someone’s profile on Twitter?
@adders Only when I’m trying to scroll back in time to find something else they’ve said 😛

@smokey @adders Also, those two platforms focus on the ‘now’ or rather on the ‘right now’. Blogging was always about catching up as well as getting lost in the archives. A day in the past is an eternity on Twitter.
@pratik Ooh, I like this distinction, too 👍
