A short and tweet history of communication.

In the other world, not even the most advanced vaccine made from genetically engineered viruses could cure the common cold. Then it all started coming together for me. We just needed to take the fruits of science, string together the pipes of the internets and then let twitterification refine our words into magical cures.
