I use Tweetbot and lots of filters but I’m still being shown hate or political posts I don’t want to see. I also feel compelled to read threads, something that’s very bad for all of us.
You may be able to take social media comments with a pinch of salt but for me right now I can’t.
So I’m taking a break from Twitter, this is the first step to maybe moving off the platform permanently.
I’m still going to be sharing my thoughts but I’ll be much more focussed on doing it via blog posts like these.
For those people that know me, I’ll still be on the various slack channels and iMessage threads.
I’ll also be adding a contact page to my blog in case anyone wants to reach out for anything.
Let’s see how long I last.
