@leo definitely felt like a different time. I remember on my original account (created June 2008) getting text messages from the Mars rover and eventually getting an Adobe Air app on Windows to see the tweets! Felt like a huge deal anytime one would show up.

Twas a simpler time, when the top tweeters were not total d-bags.

@leo They weren't the top Twitter users, they were just the most followed. You see the distinction, right?

@leo Just think at one time, you were only two spots away from being number 1 and the number 1 person was POTUS. Heck I think that's pretty impressive.
