i'm trying to wean myself off social media. this seems like an ok way to do it.
i followed some folks from kolectiva & a few from radicaltown (I made an account there a while back but never used it.) maybe that's enough for now.
I'm better than that place. I'm done. Time to leave for mastodon so I can be around all the anarchists & other fucked up weirdos who got kicked off twitter. my people.
like. twitter has always been toxic & stressful, but it didn't feel like a huge deal before the pandemic. my life was largely offline, so twitter was just a fake bizarro world that I could dip into for a few minutes a day before returning to reality. but now that I'm home all the time, twitter is a legitimate danger to my mental health since I basically have nothing better to do.
but fuck all that. I deleted twitter off my phone.
i've been here like 5 minutes & already switching to mastodon feels 100% worth it. the content warnings & lack of brands feels like such a relief. also, the fact that I can hide follower counts through tusky is fucking fantastic. twitter is such a numbers game, I'm so glad to finally be moving away from that.
