I just deleted my Twitter account. I’ve decided that Twitter and I just do not mix well. It’s not a social hangout for me and recently all I was posting about was COVID-19 awareness. (It’s serious folks. Stay home when you can, wear a mask when you can’t.) Before that I’d been on something like a two-year break from the place because I find the environment relatively toxic.
And with so much cancelling happening in SFF right now I really had no interest in going through the list of everyone I’ve followed over time and deciding whether their transgressions were legitimate enough for me to unfollow them or not. So I’m done.
It’s a great place to get the most current information on issues but it’s also very unfiltered in terms of “does this perpetuate stress or harm to others” and I just quite frankly find it exhausting. Keep enjoying it if it’s for you, but you won’t find me there anymore.
(And the only reason I post this is because I think they reuse user names after a period of time so I don’t want there to be any confusion out there about my having a Twitter account.)
