I seldom tweet directly on Twitter anymore. I still get some of my news there, but am even weaning away from that. I keep my accounts, retweet some, do the auto-tweets from #Wordpress
. (So most of my tweets start elsewhere—like this one.) Like FB, #Twitter
is squeezing the user, making choices for him and imposing viewpoints. Sorry, I choose to go elsewhere.
(This is true also for one host of an open-source social medium, so I'm backing off from it, too.)
