Have You Tried Turning It Off and On Again?

I have decided to fully leave Twitter. I stopped posting on it back in November but kept checking every couple of days or so. Every time I thought about getting back on, waiting on some sort of stability, it would never happen. Something would always happen that kept me away whether it was bigotry and racism, right-wing brigading, or just a stupid tweet from the current owner.

I finally came to realize that going back was never going to happen and I couldn't keep sticking around and giving Twitter and Elon Musk that attention. Neither of them deserve it at this point. The only thing I will miss is that most of the views to this website came from Twitter. I am on other social media which you can find in my Linktree or the About page. Over winter break, I plan on finalizing my decision and deleting my Twitter account. As much as I don't want to, why leave something like this up to rack up bot Likes, retweets, and messages. Seriously, since Musk's takeover I've gotten 15 new followers--all spam or sex bots. Anyway, I don't know what's going to happen. Since getting off Twitter, I've gotten a lot more writing done so maybe you will just have to read what I write in books and short story collections.

I don't see how how it's any fun for Gladys sitting in the boat and watching Brutus smoke and fish.

I guess she just comes along because she wants to hurl insults at her husband. Or she doesn't want to stay home and take care of Wilberforce.

As someone who used to work tech support for a cable company, I understand the frustration on both sides. Believe me, I wish I could teleport into your house and just do everything but I can't. If you can't do it then we'll send out a tech. They'll be there whenever the hell they'd like and may or may not charge you.
