I learned yesterday that some people have push notifications turned on so they get informed when someone replies to their tweets and what that person said.

I didn’t know people subject themselves to this form of torture.

I’m willing to bet @frankpallotta has push notifications on

It’s not about follower count! Actually if you have fewer followers it’s even crazier because you’re not used to abuse and trolling and having those notifications pop up can be traumatizing.

You can follow @yashar.


Tip: mention @threader_app on a Twitter thread with the keyword “compile” to get a link to it.
