I deactivated Twitter a couple of days ago. There was no specific reason. I just took stock of my life and came to the conclusion that Twitter’s inherent drawbacks outweigh its benefits.
How many times do I need to be reminded Twitter is poison?
Twitter is a cesspool
Twitter has become a joke. It’s a place where people go to show how woke they are. What’s even worse are the people who use Twitter to target those they deem to be less woke than them. It’s become ground zero for cancel culture.
I’ve tried to do this before. After a couple of days, I log back into Twitter and reactivate my account. My hope is that this time is different. Quitting Twitter is a lot like quitting smoking. It rarely sticks the first time you attempt it. If I’m able to go 30 days without logging into Twitter, my account will be deleted. This is what I’m shooting for.
Now that I have deactivated Twitter, what’s next?
Instead of Twitter, I will be using Instagram more. I never get that terrible empty, soul-sucking feeling I get using Twitter when using Instagram. If you would like to follow me on Instagram, by account is rick_rottman. If you follow me, I will follow you back.
In a move that should shock no one, I reactivated my Twitter account. I’m a weak man who lacks discipline. I felt like I was missing out on news and other information.
