I Quit

Yesterday, I quit Twitter.

I've tried for the past few years to see the point in it, but I can't. It's not the trolls that hang around and try to get under someone's skin bother me or the insults that get traded on it, I've had enough of those in real life to let it run off my back, but the uselessness of Twitter.

It may have started as a quick way to communicate, to provide soundbites, but now it's little more than an advertiser's playspace. And that's just the people I 'followed'.

There is no interaction with people I've never met, which I can get on Facebook and here, just an endless stream of ads. When I did try and have a conversation, it was terrible. I had type each sentence, then post it, hoping the other person wouldn't respond before I got the second sentence in.

I've gone.

My Twitter history will forever be on Google's servers, and Facebook's for that matter, but there will be nothing new.

Good riddance.

Friday Fun

A long weekend. Enjoy. And start that enjoyment with this lot.

And, on that nostalgic note, I bid you adieu.
