Mulling over deleting my twitter account.

It's mostly filled with people's opinions and I realised I don't care about their stupid opinions.

Then there's the manufactured outrage and fear.

And the censorship.

@jcbrand Same here. Cultishness has reached nigh-unbearable levels. Unfortunately, a select few people I find a joy to read aren't posting on the open social web yet. Should probably just add those as RSS feeds or something.

@raucao

Yeah, there is great content on Twitter, but you have to wade through mountains of shit to find the golden nugget. I no longer think it's worth the effort.

Good stuff will still come my way, without twitter.

@jcbrand Did it twice. Once around circa 2012 when twitter was going to enforce personal detail collection (versus opt-in). Second around 2016 when I hit the threshold of what you described in OT.

@jcbrand yes, even blocked it in my dns so that I don't accidently log in with some client which still caches the profile, when I returned to it in 2013 I found it just restored my _deleted_ account.

@jcbrand I'm not on Twitter anymore... Found it very toxic...

There is a life after Twitter... It's very chill and easy

@katiesplat

Yeah, I quit Facebook in 2012 and never looked back.

Quitting Twitter has been more difficult, but I'm reaching the point of no return.

@katiesplat

I know I've cut a lot of crap and toxicity out of my life by not being on FB.

With Twitter it'll be doubly so.

@jcbrand I'm still on Facebook but that's mainly a mix of family and needing it for the Oculus Quest. I'm not really involved with the wider community so I guess I am off in that sense

You have to do what works for you and what feels right at the end of the day UwU I think you've made your mind already anyway UwU
