Metafilter creator Matt Haughey has written a piece for Medium on why he loves and is an avid user of Twitter, and why it trumps Facebook in his opinion. Haughey accurately and succinctly expresses Twitter's emphasis on the "here and now" while "Facebook is mired in the past." It's a take well worth the few minutes of reading time.
