Twitter is becoming the go to app for news agencies to bait readers for subscriptions

Pet peeve

I still remember trying to get my tweet within the 200+ characters limit. I would go back to review it before tweeting and edit common words with abbreviations like "ur" for your, you're and whatever else I could archival shorten.

I'm not so big on the Twitter scene. I still remember to alt method to the madness of brevity by composing my tweets on 3rd party apps so I could later screenshoot it and tweet that way. I could be as long winded as I wanted.

Now it seems I find a lot of news conglomerates announcing stories with links that don't allow ppl to read without donating and subscribing. What's the world coming to?
