especially once multiple people join in and the threading becomes impossible to follow.
I think one of things that Cake has over other forums is the ease of following the flow of multiple conversations.
I can quote the section of a post that I’m responding to (see above ⬆️), which provides quick context for readers.
In addition, if I want to see the post someone responded to I can click the expand arrow to instantly see it. Sites like the Well, Reddit, Twitter and Voat feel like I’m stuck in the 1990s by comparison.
Perhaps there’s a reason why this would be a horrible idea:
Create a topic called Twitter Conversations.
Create a conversation on Cake and include as one of the topics, Twitter Conversations.
Right now, when I tweet a conversation on Twitter, Cake assigns the photo uploaded with the post. Like this.
Instead, for conversations that include the “Twitter Conversations” topic, use a consistent image so that over time people on Twitter associate the 🎂 image with “Go here to have a civilized discussion on this.”
