    The telegraph was so hot. But some people said it would never catch on. And was waste of time. And was ruining the language…

    Start with tom-toms and smoke signals. Telegraph is a much later version of Twitter. Already requires electricity!

    Unlike tom-toms and smoke-signals (1-to-many), telegraph is more like e-mail: 1-to-1 unless broadcast by other means at end.

    Also, both tom-toms and smoke-signals had Retweets, while telegraph did not.
