Maybe I’m crazy and have placebo’d myself. But I really believe it makes my Twitter feed substantially more usable and bearable. I’m going to add a bunch more filters like “Paul Ryan”, “Reince Priebus”, “Steve Bannon”, etc. Right on down the jackass line.

I don’t need to get this shit in real time. Most of it is bullshit anyway. It’s brain pollution. And it’s getting worse.
