Often on Twitter we post quotes which resonate with us at that time. But there is often an anti-thesis to a quote, a thought or an insight. And then of course, there’s a synthesis of the two.
An example which I saw tweeted the other day:
Peter Drucker is no longer with us, but he is frequenting Twitter quite often.
The anti-thesis to his quote could for example be;
The leader of the past knew how to ask. The leader of the future will know how to tell.
The follower of the past knew how to tell. The follower of the future will know how to ask.
Etc etc, depending on your context and creativity.
What interests me is how social media can represent this duality and even the transcending synthesis of the quote, which might be something like;
The leader of the future will know how to tell and ask.
I miss this functionality in social media today. The absurd, divergent insights, which follows statements or thoughts. Replies to tweets sometimes have this function, but not many people reply to their own tweets. Logic and sequential thinking rules social media too much.
Bring on absurd, transcendent synthesis.
