Breaking Tradition

Question

Some time ago

...
In every home

......
You could find me there

The host of secrets

...
I keep to myself

......
Defying not thin air

Protecting some

...
For a time

......
Sporadic perhaps my care

No longer needed

...
Out with a twist

......
But no reason to despair

For hardly no more

...
Do you see me

......
In fact I am quite rare

And now you know

...
Not how I look

......
But how I do compare

How about any landline phone? Other than in businesses and a small handful of homes.

though a little far fetched... could it be

the rotary dial phones

tv antennas? receive all channels, tho tv shows one, tv turns off with a twist (olden days) and antenna can be unscrewed if rooftop, doesn't compare well with satellite or cable--- except it was a lot less expensive!!
