Shitposting to Twitter
I decided, along with a hell of a lot of others, to walk away from Twitter and the Nazi-loving man-baby that bought it.
I've had several accounts there since pretty much the beginning; back when there was only Stephen Fry to follow! I never used it for anything important really; keeping my nose in conversations about recent events, tech stuff, a few friends. It has been surprisingly un-difficult to leave, in all honesty.
I truly was going to put all of my tweets here on my own website and I would have used Zach Leatherman's excellent TweetBack to do it but…
When I had a cursory look back through my Twitter, I found I haven't really posted anything I feel is worthy of immortality - at least not recently.
And that's a sad thing. I spent so many hours on that site over the years and I have nothing to show for it really.
I haven't deleted my account (yet) but it's set to private and I've uninstalled the app from my phone. The last thing I did was a pithy little fuck you to Elon…
Basically, I used IFTTT to autopost a tweet every Monday morning that reads;
“Your periodic reminder that you don't hate Mondays, you hate capitalism!”
Let's see how long it lasts (this shitpost, not capitalism…) 🤪

In almost all cases, the comments section is a vile cesspool of Reply Guys, racists, and bots.
I don't want to have to deal with that kind of hell so I don't have a comments section.
