Avoiding Twitter

I have been a Twitter user since 2008 and during last year I completely stopped posting new tweets there. Twitter – or at least my timeline(s) – consist now mostly of scandals, politics, celebrities and bots. The flair of the first years is completely gone. I only use it to discover some news these days.

I was enthusiastic when Mastodon appeared on the scene. I created an account, but it is increasingly difficult to find people to follow. But I keep trying.

Long story short, I also try to move my news-reading back to RSS feeds to completely avoid Twitter. And I plan to write more short-form notes here on this site.
