Twitter, like all social media, punished me for not engaging in whatever vitriol of the day was or for not posting rapidly. But, if I did try to say anything or promote my work few people ever saw it. That was the reality of using Twitter for me and for a lot of others since they started curating our feeds algorithmically. So, when I see people sad about its demise I'm confused.

Yes, that was the dilemma: Confrontational or ignored?

Ultimately, "going viral" is not healthy.


@jaxroam Yeah. Aside from conversation among friends and colleagues it was either one of the two. Usually for me it was the latter.
