“I really hate Twitter. It was once promising, and I feel like it still does some good, but on balance, it enables harassment and evil and cruelty at least as much if not more than it helps things change for the better. I feel like it has broken our society, and wrecked our social contract. I feel like the board at Twitter, and its CEO, Jack Dorsey, know this, but they’re too busy profiting from their inaction to care. May history judge them all the way they deserve.”
— Wil Wheaton
Yeah. Long dull biographical anecdote aside, his point about Twitter is dead on. I’ve “only” got a couple thousand people I like there, not Wil’s millions, but it bugs me that anyone stays.
I feel like they’re stuck in some Soviet gulag and I’m betraying them by not staying in the gulag with them, but that’s fucking insane. They should be happy I got out, and I should be setting up fake passports and apartments in the Free World for them.
