Why I love Twitter

Finding things like the link below. I love the way fascinating stuff you probably wouldn’t have seen otherwise, turns up in your feed. It’s a bit like being in a large second-hand bookshop, not looking for anything in particular and then an unexpected book or two jump out at you.

Housing Works Bookstore 

The article in question is about various plans for New York transit that never saw the light of day. I’m always fascinated by stuff like this – how cities could have been, might have been, especially as it makes you reflect on how they currently are.

Tweeted originally by @jamesgraham I saw it via @2000AD – some of the plans look like a Steampunk Mega-City prototype.

  1. The Housing Works Bookstore Cafe, back in the days when we spent hours in bookshops without a little voice saying “THAT THAT THAT” and grabbing handfuls of picture books : )

  2. You will have to explain Twitter to me when I next see you. I find it very confusing. But maybe it’s better that way, what with me having a tendency to develop addictions…

    I like the old maps in that article!
