Netflix was Twitter before Twitter

I just realized that the Netflix "$0.02 Reviews" function, which served as the inspiration for this blog more than a decade ago, predated Twitter. I cannot remember what character count it limited you to, but it was somewhere near Twitter's 140.

My first entry came in November 2005, about five months before the now-ubiquitous micro-blogging site debuted (SXSW, holla!). By comparison I sent my first tweet in April of 2009.

The lesson in all of this? Maybe it's: "Less is More."
