Of late, Twitter has started to kick it old-school. The topic? Locked tweets. From hinano to thaliarchus, CrimsonRaven to lelangir, it has become fashionable to place limits on who views one’s tweeting.
The Peer now spreads the glittering Forfex wide,
T’ inclose the Lock; now joins it, to divide.
Ev’n then, before the fatal Engine clos’d,
A wretched Sylph too fondly interpos’d;
Fate urged the Sheers, and cut the Sylph in twain,
(But Airy Substance soon unites again)
The meeting Points the sacred Hair dissever
From the fair Head, for ever and for ever!
As Kabitzin put it, “Love and Twitter are two-way streets.” Ironically, he has locked his twitter account as well. Reactions to private twitters remain mixed. Are they another form of anime elitism? Are they merely ways for authors to take closer control of dissemination of their own work? Will the world truly be the same without juicy tweets being public by default?
