Twitter, but Without the Timeline ➝

Josh Ginter, on his latest attempt to limit Twitter usage:

I’ve felt very much indifferent to the whole thing — there’s no anxious fear-of-missing-out, nor do I feel like my life is noticeably happier or more jolly because I’ve cut the Twitter cruft right out.

Instead, Twitter has been relegated to Facebook status — something I check once a week. A quick scroll through, a noted angry tweet talking about how terrible something is, and a subsequent exiting of the app has been my general experience in the month since.

And I am more up to date on my RSS and read-later queues than ever before.

An excellent example of Digital Social Distancing.
