Some things I missed included Twitter's quote-retweets and Tumblr's tags.
*I* used them positively ("Look at this beauteous art!!") and for those like hidden little conversations in the tags (or mostly just to tag swearing).
Learning that the absence of these were design choices to combat/prevent bullies changed my viewpoint.
It's going to change how I use social media, but I welcome the change!

@WaffleWoman Nicely said!
@WaffleWoman I am absolutely feeling that tag comments thing right now. It's like, oh shoot, I'll actually have to interact with people directly???
It's way more personal! I'll tell ya that!
Can't be shy.
But also can't hide behind anything!
