Favorite Posts by Other People in 2015

You want to know my methodology, right? Well, first I went back in twitter time and looked for pieces that I shared. Of those, I picked a favorite for each month, or two if it was a good month. I tried to vary up the people whose posts are in this list, so there aren’t any repeat appearances.
