On Twitter’s first day, pretty much all you could do was send messages and receive them. There were no username links to the @ sign then. For my tenth tweet (#83), I used “@” as a contraction to say “at Errand” as a simple (albeit secret) status update.
I got this habit from Spacebar.com (now defunct), a beautiful IRC run by my friends at Cyborganic in the 90’s. I had a page on Cyborganic, next to the first blogger Justin Hall, andÂ Howard Rheingold, inventor of the term “virtual communities”.
Activists, we all were. From day one of Twitter, I knew my life would never be the same.
