End of an era

I used to use twitter as a scratchpad for my ideas that I would develop at a later time and post some of the on this blog. As much as I enjoyed my stay there, in July 2016 l ran out of motivation to continue to use that platform and deleted my account. Twitter seems a place filled with anonymous cowards who troll. I didn’t have such experience but most people I followed retweeted such exchanges, often supporting one or the other. Initially it all seemed intriguing, gauging into psyche of people etc, but I couldn’t take it anymore. The trolling wasn’t even intelligent. It was never.  So I got out of it. I could have followed different set of people, but, honestly, there isn’t anyone worthy of following  – everyone is the same. However, I recreated the account a month later, in August but I don’t use it. I just wanted to ‘protect the brand’ – I didn’t want some one to use that handle after I was gone and people mistake that person to be me.
