I joined Twitter back when the company didn't have an E in its name. Back before, most people had never heard of it. Twitter was a news feed for the geeks and nerds of the world. It has changed quite a bit since then.
Working as a tech journalist was a career move I have zero regrets about. The pay was never fantastic, and the content was often a bit dry, but the experience of chasing down leads and telling stories about cutting-edge tech was a life experience like none other.
