Twitter Filters

“But Nick,” I hear you begin, “why do you hate Twitter’s new photo filters?”

I don’t hate them. I simply don’t see the point of them. Maybe it’s because I think of Twitter primarily as a text service (which, no matter how many Cards and inline garbage they throw at it, it is).

Which brings me neatly to Tom Giannattasio’s suggestion (sic):

twitter filters should be text-based so *shakespearean* would convert “what’s up homeboy?” to “how art thou, thine kindred soul?”
