The title tells it

The Internet of Garbage
Here’s an interesting thought from it:
Harassment doesn’t happen because the Internet is “too big”— it happens because it’s too small. Part of this has to do with thoughtless user interface design. When it comes to Twitter, an @-reply feels offensive because it “invades” your online space; it’s a message delivered straight to your face because the Twitter user interface is designed to make @-replies visible.
