I am going again to running a blog as a result of Twitter nonetheless kinda sucks.
So I believe I’m going again to running a blog and giving Twitter a relaxation for some time.
It simply makes me offended and wastes time.
When it was introduced that Elon Musk was shopping for Twitter, I hoped the positioning might be circled and the madness would slowly finish. Basically, I needed Twitter to roll it again to 2009. That’s cat pics, meals pics, art work, geek information, and little or no political dialogue.
However the reverse occurred. Twitter grew to become extra unruly. Extra contentious. It’s a distinct caliber of rubbish now, nevertheless it’s nonetheless largely rubbish.
This might be as a result of Musk is a “improper thinker,” based on the Tumblr refugees who’ve parked it on the app, or that the mainstream media has misplaced management of the platform and persons are lashing out. It didn’t assist that Musk unbanned some of us that the Tumblr crowd actually didn’t like.
(These are the identical individuals who swore they’d rage give up the platform if Musk purchased it, in fact.)
Regardless of the purpose, it’s clear to me that Twitter won’t ever return to what I need it to be, and I’m simply losing a number of my time partaking in bad-faith arguments with legit mentally in poor health individuals.
And whereas it does seem to be there’s kinda sorta a plan to ultimately flip Twitter right into a helpful “the whole lot app,” it’s simply not there but. And, frankly, I don’t have the endurance to attend for it to get there. As a content material creator, there isn’t even a monetary incentive to place up with the bullshit at this level.
(You’d be stunned what persons are keen to place up with if there’s cash concerned. Effectively, really, no you most likely wouldn’t be.)
So the plan is to spend extra time build up our personal websites, and get together prefer it’s nonetheless 2007.
I’ll be posting extra op-eds, information, artwork suggestions and scorching takes over right here, and Geeky possible will as nicely.
We’re additionally planning on rising out The Reef all year long and could have extra particulars about upcoming comedian ebook initiatives, tabletop games and our deliberate podcast community.
All in all, I’m hoping that reducing again on social media will let me get again on monitor and really make stuff once more.
I’ll nonetheless preserve my Twitter account, in fact, however will use it largely to publish hyperlinks to articles over right here.
And who is aware of? Perhaps sometime Twitter will really be well worth the time sink.
