I’m Suspending My Activity on Twitter

I’ve been thinking about my relationship with Twitter for some time now. I like Twitter but, I have grown disillusioned by …

  • Mindless shares, likes, retweets, and replies … many of which I strongly suspect to be automated. Correction … I know to be automated.
  • Automated direct messages.
  • While I have never been a fan of automation, I’m just as mindless as everyone else.
