It’s been easy to stop using Twitter

You may have noticed that over the last couple of weeks I’ve been quiet on social media and on here. I needed a bit of a reset whilst I figure out creativity what I want to be doing. After these couple of weeks with a little amount of news, podcasts, no social and no thinking about tech I’ve realised it’s been easy to quit using Twitter, it’s same reason it was easy quitting instagram – it’s owners.

When instagram was bought by Facebook I didn’t want to help fund Zuck’s empire, so after a bit of thought I deleted my apps and my account and never looked back.

It was inevitable that Elon was going to get Twitter weeks ago so I did the same. I deleted the apps and whilst I didn’t delete my account I stopped using it. I don’t want to help fund the richest man in the world with an impulse problems platform. With this in mind it was easy, I don’t want to contribute to or be a part of his platform.

I’m still debating deleting my account though.
