/* WHAT IF
* we put the newest toots at the BOTTOM of the timeline?

* We have gotten used to reading twitter conversations in reverse order.
* We all hate doing this. Or at least I do. But it's How Twitter Works.
* Twitter has tried to fix it, with that thing where they detect a conversation
* and glom all the relevant tweets together.
* But their timeline is still resisting this.
*
* What if we change this?
* It kinda makes my brain hurt, at first. But I'm gonna stick with it a little while.
