Yesterday, Twitter unloaded an update on the unsuspecting masses that introduced a thin blue line to thread conversations together. As always happens whenever something is Slightly Different on the Internet, the people revolted. Except for these few.
While everyone else was busy wailing and gnashing their teeth in 140 character bursts, these brave iconoclasts have been vocal in their support. Meet the people who love New New (New) New Twitter. They were hard to find.
kinda feel like a huge moron for even slightly complaining about the twitter change. it isn’t that bad

Something is wrong with y’all. The update on twitter is good, not confusing. It’s annoying to see a back and forth convo tweets later.

No less an authority than AllThingsD reporter Peter Kafka weighed in on the smiley side of the thin blue line:
And perhaps the wisest words of all:
I haven’t seen this new change to the layout on Twitter but then I use an external app like all normal people.
