Kindness Journey – Day 188 – Watching Twitter Burn from afar

I used to use Twitter on a daily basis. Initially, I thought it was a great way to keep up with news, but eventually I watched it dissolve into a cesspool of hatred driven by algorithms that showed people the absolute worst that humanity had to offer, and the equally sinister bots that promoted views similar to your own but we’re not real people.

Twitter reminded me of the old Monty Python skit about the argument clinic. While hysterical when viewed from a distance, twitter was nothing but a cause of anger and frustration.
