Can I buy this?

the grey hurts my eyes.

This is a really really cool idea and I hope it gets picked up more!

i like this

Lovin the idea though not sure I want my whole stream informed of what Im doing right now.. Does this defeat twitter? Most of my followers will not apreciate this form of technology. They will be questioning why the UI looks like the websites broken.
JacopoGio
hmmm, checking it ;-)
woud be nice to have a Time stamp near by
altf
i like. simple and useful.
uggedal
Love the minimalism
stutefc
Looks good!
funkstop
Playing around with a tiny thread. I like it. Great idea @joshu
soundboy
hello mr schachter, what in the world is this!
gwidianto
what's the difference with twitter?
saskia
I agree with @uggedal: Love the minimalism
nitin
hi Joshua - great to see this - would love your comments on http://microsyntax.pbworks.com/LinkedList which I started awhile back. Meant as compact syntax for tweet threading
sebzac
Wow! This is way too minimal.. but lovin it..

Using the Twitter platform for Threaded Conversations is nice, but how do we get ratings in here?
Ok, I expected that the content would be published to Twitter, but it doesn't. This means we got more than 140 characters to discuss and features can be easaly added.
rainbowhill
nobody really expects answers to "lazyweb" questions.
mvisser
But how will this leverage the platform, other than asking your followers to join a discussion?
hp_akkerman
My first tiny thread entry - will it work?
OK it does. Looks nice / basic.

I am tired goind to sleep finally ☃☃☃

hmm
aslak_hellesoy
uffda!
genieyclo
interesting.
minimalism ftw. good to see your running this on python.
richardlusk
Good stuff
pims
Great job @joshu
hannukarvonen
this is actually genious!
ihoka
shmooth
minimal. reddit-like.
ihoka
Unicode works ☺
meredithcarson
It's almost analogue. Love at first sight.
derekw
hey, this is kinda sweet
drawtrebor08
this would be great for giveaways ;)
dhavalmotghare
love the minimalism in these days of web 2.0
acedanger
this is pretty cool, now that I see what it's supposed to do
bastienlabelle
Cool stuff (and thanks @pims for sharing)
andre_g
This is nice!
TTBeNnI
I like it too. A very usefull tool for real conversations on twitter!
mfukar
Very neat. Kudos.
cshirky
the tinythread, she no is turning those http thingies into links? that is certainly old skool, but perhaps a bit *too* old skool...
tom_watson
You are a very insightful person joshu. This works for me. I'm thinking it will go into the stratoshphere in take up.
nezmar
Nice idea, and I approve the minimal look. :)
joshr
nice work @joshu, simple simple
marrriones
Yeah ! i like it. Minimalism is good ;)
fresh_squeezed
Handy. A kind of twitter-tangent-machine...
johngoode
I like the simplicity, like it lots!
Dongy
So what is it? An asychronous chat room? :)
galgo
Sweetness is a.tinythread.com I like the minimalism & simplicity
Dongy
I meant asynchronous :)
piawaugh
I like it, but agree with @cshirky need links to work (urls, nicks, comments), and perhaps ability to reply to have tiny threading :)
dxbluey
I can see this really working well. Nice work Joshu!
piawaugh
nice job @joshu! Yay Python!
njr0
No idea where this is going, but looks worth a whirl
leebloke
This is the first time I've twittered for months. It's quite exciting
piawaugh
I love how it only lets Twitter know once that you are in the conversation. Nice! Makes a conversation with Twitter community easier, faster, and less spammy :)
Twipcomics
How will it work when the topic is less self-referential? It seems promising - AND maybe one of those things that ultimately becomes something different as users begin to play around with it.
piawaugh
Mind you, I still quite like IRC for channel/community discussions. Perhaps integration of Twitter with an IRC channel would be useful? Or is that just evil? And with that I'm off to sleep :)
GingerNic
chat room/mini forum + twitter/friendfeed = win?
stuartcw
日本語も使える?
piawaugh
I think it could help aggregate conversations simultaneously from multiple communities. IRC can have easy web interface without account required, so (slightly) lower barrier to entry than Twitter.
lbrt
@joshu any thoughts on keeping spam out of tiny threads yet?
leebloke
@piawaugh Get off to sleep. Its too addictive. You'll be here all night
otrops
What I'm liking most about it so far is that it becomes a tool for discovering people outside of your usual group of twitter followers.
johngoode
the inventor rarely has the privilege of defining the purpose of his invention
Kate_Butler
this is interesting. though i never thought i'd get nostalgic for IRC!
whittest
hm. other than marketing purposes, not sure I see the point of the "I joined a thread" tweets
piawaugh
Thanks @leebloke, this is cool, but I need to be up early. Last thoughts: Would be nice if refreshing took you to the bottom of the page (most recent content), also if you could reply to specific comments and create mini threads.
cshirky
@johngoode corrolary: only bad inventors have the privilege of defining the purpose of their inventions
whittest
piggybacking off of the existing authentication/community around twitter makes sense to me, but the auto-tweets don't.
PRL1973
I never knew that I didnt know that I wasnt able to do this until now. Amazing.
joeatwork
fab!
whittest
immediate feeling is that it's shared space but not particularly conversational space
one interesting prior art note would be the Urban Baby forums (David Karp pre-tumblr)...
they were short-item focused but allowed for longer comments, and had the sort of reply threading that would make discussion clearer
very interesting
cshirky
@whittest i imagine it will be a place for "hey, what should I see in santiago?" kinds of twit Qs. it will also be more asynch/conversational with groups of half a dozen participants.
golan
thinks tinythread might be better post-facto, for visualizing implicit threads in Twitter, after the fact?
piawaugh
@cshirky, as I said, it's more like IRC ;) Creating common spaces for discussion and hanging out virtually amongst like-minded people (whom you may or may not already know)
xqus
this is going to be interesting. :)
Waddo
is anyone going to read all of these if this thing 'goes big'?
jen_bolton
No. ;)
twhid
...just checking it out
Twipcomics
@johngoode So much good feedback here, in such a short time; This inventor has opened an exciting new door.

@joshu perhaps rephrase the text below textbox to "we will send a tweet to your stream ONCE to notify your followers!"
Twipcomics
I agree with @piawaugh: Would be nice if refreshing took you to the bottom of the page (most recent content).
... which it just did. (What did I miss?)
stenpittet
isn't that a twitter chatroom?
samharrelson
a.tinythread.com reminds me of pinboard.in. love the format of both.
DarkBls
Testing atiny thread too
dovene
Awesome! Nice app with minimal design. Good job @joshu. Looking forward next features.
