So far, ello looks more like twitter text styling (woot, bold and italic!) than fb. Early days yet, but I don't recall starting off at any other social media platform at such a raw state. Fascinating to think of homesteading analogies while noting the actuality of digital terra nullus.
Is the impulse to short blurbs simply an artifact of the shallow text box rather than the deep expanse of LJ/DW or other places?
(And well hello that's different from twitter...it's possible to edit posts! I wonder if it shows that you edited? Let's find out.)
