Alex Garcia grew his Twitter following dramatically using threads. He pumped out original, long-form content on Twitter every day for a month.

Making yourself the "cat person" of SaaS is a bold move. In the ever-raging dogs vs cats debate, the cat people get the shaft. Dog people get the association of loving "man's best friend" while the cat people get the association of the "cat lady." You know, the crazy recluse with 12 cats and a […]

Nobody goes into their Todo list to see tasks from various projects all jumbled together. If I'm working on a work […]

Their free version is limited to 10 jobs but this is plenty for […]
I really, really love Roam for many reasons.
