Spot on...

I don't think this guy understands how tweets are supposed to work.

Huh? It's called a thread. Pretty standard stuff.

I guess succinctness just isn't his strong suit?

I guess don't understand what you're getting at. I see dozens of threads like this - many way longer - every single day. And this one is about as well written/argued as possible, in pretty succinct fashion, IMO.

If you have to use an ellipsis to continue a tweet because you hit the word limit, IMO, you are using the wrong platform to try and discuss something. This guy essentially wrote a pretty well written opinion piece and then blasted it across 16 tweets. I just find that annoying.

Then you must not spend much time on Twitter. Because this is incredibly common. People use this exact format all the time when a formal article/blog post is too much and a single tweet or two isn't enough.

I spend enough time on twitter to know I find it annoying. Similar to how even though REM sold millions of records, I find their music annoying. I'm not sure why you are having such a difficult time with this.

Ha, you're the one who brought it up and decided to comment on the format rather than the substance of the post.

You're all in on this aren't you? Is Devin Faraci a pen name of yours or something?

Truly one of the most bizarre arguments I've seen in this thread.

As for the tweetstorm, he's making the same argument that has pretty much been made for the past several years.
TCTTS

No doubt. I just thought he put it more eloquently/succinctly than I've ever read.

I don't completely disagree with what he's saying, but I think it's incomplete until we see TROS.

I guess I'm one of the few that actually likes TFA and don't think it's quite the mess others think it is.
TCTTS

Agreed. Abrams could solve/save a lot, but we'll have to see.

As for TFA, I don't really think it's a "mess." I just think it A) lacks context/simplicity as detailed in the tweet thread, and B) is honestly kind of boring in the second half, at least until Han dies. It's not bad at all, it just could have been so much better.

I love TFA, shoot me. Is this what it feels like to be Spilner?

Not until you like Attack of the Clones.

I like Batteries Not Included, so yea, we make mistakes as kids.

The Force Awakens is my favorite outside of the OT. I'll watch it anytime. I have it on my DVR even though I have the DVD so I can turn it on if I can't sleep. I thnk it's a masterpiece.

TFA had the feel and wonder of classic Star Wars, and the [everything else] of [generic scifi movie].

Favorite non OT movie is easy: Rogue One.

Solo would be 2nd.

Despite the headline, there's not a lot of substance here. That said, we do finally get confirmation that the series will be six one-hour episodes...

TFA is what happens when you give a nerd, who is a fan but not really a committed one, the keys to the kingdom.

TLJ is what happens when you give the keys to a nerd who would rather play Go-bots than Transformers.

Rogue One is trending on twitter, and I have no idea why.

As I searched the topic on twitter, I came across this heaping pile of trash.

Dynamite drop in, Marty. Those broadcasting classes are really paying off.

Also, that above ranking is so, so laughable
