A Drag off Twitter

Tycho:

I think we can say with some degree of certainty that Twitter has systematically elevated fringe positions and granted sociopaths - whose feeding grounds have typically been constrained by natural factors - a global remit. This barely constitutes an observation.” It’s a fairly simple transform executed on the absolute edges of the signal, what these instruments are painstakingly designed to do, and we get to live in the chasm that has opened between them. Imagine if a sore could have sores. It’s a hellscape that gleefully commingles Dante’s Inferno and a high school cafeteria.

I quit twitter for the third time earlier this year. My nicotine patch has been bookmarking a few select people who blog on twitter. I try to treat it just like a blog with no comment section. If the last 25 years of the internet has taught me anything, it’s that there is no healthy value in being in the comment section.

Every time I see that someone has quit twitter I congratulate them, as if they’ve just quit smoking or gotten divorced.
