I don't know if it's too much minutiae, but one other aspect is how twitter changed how @replies were visible, and based on this, how another convention emerged (appending a character before the @reply at the start of the line) so that other people who may not follow that person can also see the reply. It acts both to broden conversations and as a way for people to selectively promote followers they converse with who may not be getting followed widely, and thus also to increase interdisciplinary connections.
