I’ve had a Twitter account for a long time, though I haven’t Tweeted much in years. I have been cross-posting blog posts from this space to Twitter, but to be honest I don’t think I received much if any traffic because of that. Mostly, what I find Twitter good for is during breaking news, when I want to get an up-to-date synopsis of what is happening. Beyond that it seems to be mostly noise.
When Mr. Musk bought Twitter, I asked myself if the platform was really important to me. I’ve been chewing on that question and my conclusion is that I really have no use for it at this time. I have few interactions on Twitter. I won’t miss posting or even having a presence there.
I deactivated my Twitter account before typing out this blog post.
