Most of the literal Socratic dialogues never happened that way. Plato made them up. But in the 21st century, I have had many genuine (though not literal) Socratic dialogues on Twitter. I have arranged the tweets for many of these Twitter convos into Storify stories. You can see the full archive of my storify stories here. Below, I give links to all of my stories with 200 or more pageviews, starting from the most popular story. The number of pageviews is listed beside each link. (I did this once before, for my August 5, 2014 post.)
