While we do see the promise in Lyft and its peers, we think investing legends in Silicon Valley aren’t always looking to solve the same problems every day humans have.

Marc Andreessen has created a number of things, but he’s just as likely to go down in history as the leading practitioner of the tweet storm as he is for inventing the Netscape browser.

This afternoon Andreessen took to Twitter in a eleven-part output to explain why he thinks Lyft, the rival to Uber in which Andreessen’s firm Andreessen Horowitz is an investor, is best positioned to transform ground transportation.

The tweet storm was tied to the introduction of Lyft Line, a carpooling app the service introduced today. Andreessen returned to themes we’ve seen in the writings of Uber investor Bill Gurley: environmental benefits, new markets, efficiencies, and the sort.
