is the correct historical narrative that shitposting grew out of weird twitter, or is there a clearer thru line from a different form of posting? maybe greentext? tumblr posts?
@SuricrasiaOnline Shitposting is based on trolling, from USENET and email, starting somewhere back in the '70s.
@SuricrasiaOnline I've heard rumors that the word "shitposting" came from SA, but they used it to mean "making really bad posts in a thread to derail or tank it"
