Insightful Tweetstorms ⛈
For those who don’t know, a “tweetstorm” is a chain of tweets linked together to express an idea succinctly. I love that format because it’s not constrained to 140 characters, but at the same time is usually shorter than a blogpost. Here are some of my favorites of this week:
Tiago Forte on Twitter: "1/ I'm increasingly convinced that THE most important thing in productivity is to end every cycle with a clear milestone or deliverable"
Read this thread if you care about startup productivity. My cofounder Pamela and I push really hard to get things finished at Beek. This is why. https://t.co/iwSz0WhR7K
James Clear on Twitter: "1/ Physical environment is one of the most overlooked drivers of habits and behavior change. It has a profound impact on our daily actions."
Struggling with habits? Make it a priority to read this. https://t.co/PECS1R7ZI2
Taylor Pearson on Twitter: "1/ I love Derek Siver’s question: “What are you optimizing your life for?”"
When you tweet with a location, Twitter stores that location.
You can switch location on/off before each Tweet and always have the option to delete your location history.

What I'm listening to 🎶
IPFS, Coinlist and the FileCoin ICO, by Y Combinator and Juan Benet. If you feel like you missed out on the early days of Bitcoin and Ethereum, I recommend you check out FileCoin as a possible next bet.
