Just go read these articles by Joe:
I'm skeptical that anyting can or should replace Twitter. I don't think we are ready for this type of interaction but I'd love to be wrong. I miss a lot of my friends on Twitter after almost two years away from it.
I can be found @email@example.com. I chose Counter.Social because a few of my friends were there. Will Wheaton was also there and he's a good egg.
Update: I forgot we can't have nice things. Counter.social may have some issues with following the license terms and federating properly.
