@manton It may not exactly fit your metaphor, but as I was reading, I was reminded of community/communal gardens, where a community will come together in some fashion to grow and tend the land. (The one in my neighborhood when I lived in DC apparently got its start as a WWII Victory Garden.)

@smokey I think it does fit the metaphor. Wish I had thought of that. ๐Ÿ™‚

@manton Signs of things to come from the book I'm sure. Nicely written piece.

@manton An interesting piece by Manton on the idea of open gardens vs walled gardens. I like his approach how open standards could help social siloโ€™s like Twitter to defeat the trolls, hate speech and online intimidation. But I also wonder how this would be a viable businessmodel for companies like Twitter. They are so accustomed to ad-based and data-driven revenue-models, how would this change when you switch to more open gardens?

@manton Youโ€™re welcome to it, if you ever want it :-)

@manton More importantly the walled gardens can also use those barriers to keep people out. I have been put in Twitter jail three times for POSSEing tweets. The first time I @ mentioned baseball players when live tweeting the all-starr game. I was flagged for harassment. They never unlocked my app. I had to stop syndicating from WordPress. That is how you treat fans. The second time I was inviting bloggers of color and developers who identify as female to the #IndieWeb summit. The third time (currently) I @ mentioned other educators in discussion of owning your own domain and how best to engage with twitter threads. Who knows how long they will lock me out. The content of my tweets can not be suspect. I literally "copy and pasted" all my offending tweets natively and not one was flagged for "harassment." Good to know that if you push for better diversity online Twitter's harassment filters will mark your tweets as dangerous.

@jgmac1106 Yeah. If they are going to automatically flag tweets, they need to have enough people to review that algorithm when it's made a mistake.
