Snippet: I Don’t Think People Really Want Another Twitter ☇

Shared on November 1, 2022

Matt Birchler:

I know the most likely outcome that we all keep using Twitter the same as we always have, but there is definitely an energy about Twitter lately that has people thinking, “do I even like doing this?” […]

I see more people in direct message chats and Discords these days, and people seem to get energy from them in a way you just don’t from Twitter anymore. Twitter may be a hellscape, but I’m not sure people want to start up another hellscape, just with different ownership.

I’m giving and Mastodon a try and trying to use each in their own way, rather than a Twitter clone and I think that’s going to make it more enjoyable for me. Marshall McLuhan’s words haven’t felt more true.
