To tweet or not to tweet

If you want to connect other than via Twitter, I’m now @p.d.smith_ on Instagram and Threads - and I don’t mean the 1984 nuclear war drama.

I’ve been on Twitter since 2008 when I jumped ship from MySpace (remember that?!) and although it can be a massive distraction, I’ve met some great people through it and I still find my lists useful to find out what's going on.

For these reasons I’m not giving up on Twitter quite yet, but my timeline is becoming increasingly noisy and the signal is growing ever more faint.

I’m also annoyed by the plan to put Tweetdeck behind a paywall in August. It seems to me that Musk’s Twitter is on a road to nowhere. Indeed, soon it won’t even be called Twitter! Crazy.

So although I’m still on Twitter, I’m also trying out Instagram and Threads. It’s clearly not perfect and up till now I’ve tried to avoid the Zuckerberg empire. To be honest there doesn’t seem to be much happening on Threads, for now at least, but here goes! You’re welcome to join me…
