my twitter account is long gone now but I still occasionally check on particular people I used to follow and there are some of them where it's all just a continual feed of politics stuff and I just... ugh
I remember my feed being maybe like 20 such people and I'm so glad to be rid of it
I was a bit anxious when I killed my account that I would be losing the ability to keep myself informed about things but that hasn't been a problem in practice.
If it's a significant enough development then it'll be on the news, and I don't need to read 20 different peoples' hot takes on it to stay informed
@fraggle I feel like I've definitely lost the ability to broadcast; if I've got a project I'm working on that I think is cool, it's just not going to get as many eyeballs on the fediverse, but from an incoming perspective I have zero regrets. so glad to be away from that mental sludge.
