11. I don't use twitter for a reason.....

Nov 2019

I do have an account, but I don't use it. I get why people like it, but I've decided to not it, or facebook.

But these bots are getting very sophisticated. They have begun working in swarms, reporting posters they don't like to effectively silence them in a conversation. That leaves only those that either agree or just listen. Making for a very lopsided conversation.

But sites like du seem to be on the way out (not du, not yet, but other standalone sites have been depleted in favor of fb, twitter, and even whatsapp groups), so my time may be limited.
