Interesting how much this sounds like Micro.blog in a nutshell: no follower count, no disembodied likes, just posting and responding as a conversation. I didn’t realize how much I would like until I tried it.

Earlier that month, during an interview at a TED conference, the Twitter chief executive Jack Dorsey shared a big idea of his own. “If I had to start the service again, I would not emphasize the follower count as much,” he said. “I would not emphasize the ‘like’ count as much. I don’t think I would even create ‘like’ in the first place.”
