Get. Off. Twitter.

I Want My Name I Want My Name: So here’s the deal with Twitter. It started as this great place where people could post quick thoughts with no friction. Then it got big, then it went public, and now Twitter’s obligated to do right by their investors. Investors want profit, profit comes from ad sales, and businesses choose to sell ads on platforms that have lots of users.
You can scream at @jack and @biz all you want about banning racists, fascists, and those who threaten other users, but unfortunately, that toxic mess makes up a sizable chunk of the Twittersphere. And if they choose to reduce their user base, their ad platform becomes less attractive (by the numbers), profits drop, and investors will start calling for new management (which will come in an take action to boost users, starting the cycle all over again).
Twitter’s not going to change unless there’s a financial reason to do so. And there’s not. So get off Twitter. And plan on leaving any social platform that A. goes public and B. relies solely on ad sales for revenue. They’re toxic.
Support the indie web. Start a website. Start using social platforms that aren’t publicly traded. Be wary of things that are free.
And seriously, get off Twitter. It’s not healthy.
