Those are the manners of your local culture. And apparently those of Twitter HQ, which wants to enforce their very local culture on the world. In my culture, and in most cultures of the world, it is bad manners to lie about biological sex.
I am sympathetic to your viewpoint, but you're participating in a larger culture here on the internet — various overlapping ones, in fact, not all of which share your original norms
Super good thread. I am too lazy to be systematic about this kind of thing on a regular basis, but I endorse the general points of 1) your network = one of your most important assets and 2) you can strengthen and grow your network strategically. https://t.co/iVJt2ToRQv

Yeah on second read-through I think the thread is way too dismissive overall of legit cybercoins' utility
More importantly, I'm perturbed by how much "coin" appears in this tweet: https://t.co/wpAwYrQyz8
