Retweeted by Mathew IngramThink about it, @pmarca departure from Twitter probably because of pending acquisition announcement. He's worried about conflict of interest
Retweeted by Mathew IngramI always wonder what things would be like if Twitter were still around.

Retweeted by Mathew IngramIn this vision of the moderator as a really shitty chat bot, who is served? And why should (reliably awful) past debates be our model?
Retweeted by Mathew IngramShould moderators fact-check candidates? @BrianStelter asked Janet Brown, director of the #Debate commission

Retweeted by Mathew IngramBad for twitter. (Even if you didn't like him. Never a good sign if people need a break from your platform.)
Retweeted by Mathew IngramWhen you used to call your boy's house phone back in the day and their dad would answer
Retweeted by Mathew IngramIf reporters aren't supposed to factcheck at debates, why exactly are reporters moderators to begin with? Why not just have an actor do it?
Retweeted by Mathew IngramiCloud Storage: when you decide it's easier to pay an extra $2 for more rather than figure out what video to delete.
Retweeted by Mathew IngramRemember: it doesn't matter if #KeithScott had a gun. NC is an open carry state. Mere presence of a gun can't now be made an issue.
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram @Steven_Strauss little creeps available everywhere — you must be thinking about London ☺️ @claireatki #1 Buying a crepe from a street vendor on the Champs Elysee and then sitting in the Jardins Tuilleries is pure heaven @claireatki about Paris in general or about crepes?Spoken like a true robot hater think my favorite thing about Paris is that there are literally crepes available everywhere, at all hours of the day and nightAhhh, the life of an artist

Retweeted by Mathew Ingram1.) Buy Twitter 2.) Take it private 3.) Tell everyone it is now valued at "Priceless"
Retweeted by Mathew IngramHope @pmarca takes Twitter private instead of Salesforce or Google buying it — company should never have gone public in the 1st place @pmarca Pls don't let the lawyers dictate terms... I do hope there's an archive of your tweetstorms somewhere. Your curation will be missed!
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram @adamjohnsonNYC "complicated past" is journo-speak for "was a poor black person in America."
Retweeted by Mathew IngramMedia types get extremely exercised when people plagiarise words but do not blink when it comes to sharing ripped-off visuals.
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram, Paris — until next time!“We’re not a burden on America or a stain on America, or an object of pity or charity for America. We’re America.”

Yo, @CMPD, since you love the word "transparency", can you explain why you deleted all of these tweets today or nah?
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram.@CMPD deleted all tweets about releasing bodycam video. #Charlotte #CharlotteProtest #KeithScott
Retweeted by Mathew IngramSomething else I said to @spaydl -- being web native makes transparent updates feel natural and necessary
