i typed some stuff into my completely wireless laptop and pressed a button and it propagated what i typed to hundreds of people all around the world. i now occupy a box on your screen and many others. hi.

your text that you type into your device also propagates to me, and occupies a box on my screen. i read the text in the boxes and if i like one, i press a "star" button to send the person who typed it a notification, which does nothing but increase an arbitrary number and make them feel good. if i really like the text i can press a button marked "boost" and then i send that text they typed to the people who usually get my messages.

sometimes people post dumb things. like being on tour with the person who predicted sikh headwear. i press the boost button the most on those kinds of posts.
