It makes me miserable. The ratio of pleasant/interesting conversation to awful political bile drags me down with it. I may well quit. Which would leave this as my only active social media account. And mostly shouting into the wind. It is hard to be positive today.

That sounds rather rubbish. Twitter is a strange place, I've never quite worked out what it's supposed to be for. So much noise, such little content.

Did you have fun at the weekend?

Yes thanks. Definitely an enjoyable experience.

I've hardly touched twitter for months now.

I don't blame you. It is all hating on Trump and Brexit. Which clearly all right thinking people should do. Just ... not all the time.

LJ is my only social media account. It's not so bad.

It may not be. I just miss being able to talk to lots of my friends who I can't now. I'd kind of got into a groove of discussing moderately meaningful stuff on Facebook, but I'm not sure I can repeat that here as it kind of needs a critical mass of people. Ah well.

I don't use twitter, so no comments on that. I definitely think LJ is better as a social media outlet, though. :)

Sorry, that last comment was me. I didn't realize I wasn't logged in. But I definitely think LJ is better than Twitter, anyway. LJ lets you actually write things of substance.

I agree, but it's a bit of a ghost town these days.

I have made twitter bearable by being a) extremely picky about who I follow, after I mass-unfollowed everyone but fanf b) being quite prepared to unfollow people if they tweet too much depressing stuff c) making use of the "hide retweets" feature for a few individuals d) not spending too long on it at any one time.

I am definitely in a bubble there but it is a pretty good bubble.

Yeah, I can see that might help. Glad it's working out for you.

I am apparently here infrequently, although I'm trying to pick up pace as I find LJ a generally better format. But I'm trying to use it more often. I've certainly been writing more.
