Example. (new window)
Personally I find it distracting from the text, but that may just be me. What do you think?

@bradenslen On the whole, too small to be useful. Not a good use of space in information density terms.
@adders Thanks. That confirms my thoughts.
One thought: Thumbs can be appropriate in certain instances. I’m thinking about Neocities or Geocities back when. Those pages were unique enough to warrant thumbs. But today a bunch of WordPress or Drupal sites are not different enough to show up at thumbshot size.
