The Verge: Why Twitter reset the @Twitter account

The Verge: Why Twitter reset the @Twitter account. “On Friday morning, Twitter posted a single word to its Twitter account: ‘The.’ Average users began replying, telling a story one word at a time. When it was done, the first thread read: ‘The beginning of the end is near. Yay.’ Had it been posted a month or so, it’s likely the world would have written off Twitter’s ‘the’ as a pocket-tweet. But if you’ve been paying attention to @Twitter for the past few weeks, you’ve noticed an undeniable transformation. An account best known for posting almost comically remedial education to its user base — it was still instructing followers on how to retweet as recently as 2016 — suddenly felt a bit more alive.”
