I have deleted my Twitter account.
- I no longer use it.
- Social media isn't fun.
- There are better ways to connect.
- Retaining my account feels hypocritical.
Honestly, that's all there is to it (and it feels good).
Twitter encourages infantile, reactionary and shallow discourse. What do you expect from a technology that enforces a 280 character limit and trains us to read in bite size chunks? Twitter may as well enforce other arbitrary limitations, for example the exclusive use of monosyllabic words.
I want no part of it.
If folks genuinely want to connect with me, they'll be in touch (as I will be with them).
