I'm leaving Twitter for a bit
I’m leaving Twitter for a bit.
The site has become increasingly triggering to me. Controversial takes are one thing but I feel like my feed is purposely pressing my buttons these days.
I get it. Enragement = engagement. But I think it has gone too far.
And it is taking a toll on my mental health.
I took a break from Twitter this weekend. Two entire days!
And my step has felt a little lighter. My thoughts a little brighter.
Do I still think about tweeting? All freaking day.
But it feels nice to ignore those for a little while. And to focus on the present.
I’m taking a break and I don’t know when I’ll be back. It might be a week. It might be a year.
I’m not returning until I know that opening the app will make me feel better. Not worse.
I still want to stay in touch with the friends I’ve made over the years. So I’m starting a weekly-ish newsletter on Turbo Native, growing RailsDevs, and being a solopreneur.
