It’s a little embarassing… but I’ve been on twitter dot com for over 11 years now.
I saw and retweeted this the other day and you know what? Maybe those onions are right. It’s high time for a break. I’ve taken breaks before. Once for close to a whole month. I’m not sure how long this one will go for.
I wonder how many books I’ll read.

The dumpster fire that has become Twitter
I’m not sure how it came to be this way. Another embarrassment that I have to admit is I used to be one of those people who thought banning people from a platform was in some way restricting free speech.
I see now that this is not the case. For free speech to be preserved a platform must enforce a policy against hatred.
Twitter has increasingly shown that it is unwilling to do this.

ALEX JONES screams that school shootings are fake as the victims’ parents look on in horror.
Cut to: JACK glancing through his rule book.
Hmm. Not much I can do about this.
Alex Jones is a cunt!
WHOA! YOU’RE BANNED, LADY!
i think i need to chill with the negativity of this dumpster fire of a website for a little while and reabsorb something positive. peace out friends for now 👋— Josh 🕊 (@phocks) August 8, 2018
I guess there’s some catching up to do. For now Twitter is protecting hatred and abuse and is working actively against its own ordinary users.
Goodbye, for now little bluebird.
