Think it's time to go back to blogging and long form. Twitter and Mastodon just encourage dopamine nasty hits. Get angry about this tweet, hate that screencap (seriously, we're back to screencapping shit already?), uh oh that person said the wrong thing, let's get the pitchforks oiled up.
I've done all this stuff myself, and and I've seen all this stuff everyday from others. I'm still sick of it.
@sonniesedge I'm fond of Dreamwidth, though it could do with some mobile apps.
I made a conscious effort on Twitter to try and inject positivity, and man is it hard when you're surrounded by people getting off on negativity. Same thing here. Anyone who thinks Mastodon is "nice" hasn't been on it long.
@sonniesedge I feel the same way. So where are you writing? I'm writing at curtismchale.ca
@sonniesedge Damn. New technologies only allow people new opportunities to be people. Still suck. Drop your blog link. I’ll read it.
@sonniesedge Sucks. Was supposed to be ‘still sucks, though.’ Not some weird passive-aggressive thing.
@sonniesedge I've been just thinking the same thing. Actually, I've sort of been doing some of that taking a POSE(Post Once Syndicate Everywhere) approach and using my blog as the central point.
@sonniesedge Oh no, not screenshotting already. For crying out loud, people have 500 characters over here. One more reason to perfer micro.blog over everything else I guess. We don't have screenshotted text oter there yet.
