I did it. I just deactivated my Twitter account. I joined birdsite in 2007. Tweeted close to 59,000 times. I wasted so much of my goddamned life on that thing.
I have my archive downloaded in case my future generations want to read my virtual journal, but I’m done.
@md I think the most galling thing is how much content I gave them for free to monetize. I’m not claiming it was *good* content … I’m not sure why anyone would read it. But I participated in giving them my labor for free, got nothing in return, and they used my (imperceptibly microscopic relative to everyone else) participation to enrich themselves. Shame on me.
