About this blog

This blog was active from 2010 through 2014. This was the “golden age of Twitter,” when anything that mattered started, happened, and continued on Twitter. 

While the economy was crashing, adulthood for Millennials was starting. We were going into debt and losing jobs. The future looked bleak. We moved from GeoCities, MySpace, and LiveJournal to Twitter. There we found people who made us feel a little less alone. Through the volatility and mass uncertainty, we made lemonade. We started blogs, we started companies, we forged relationships with the faces behind the tweets. 

This blog is an artifact of that time. 

I hope you find this space enjoyable.
