Silencio

I don’t know about you, but I continue to use Twitter less and less these days. Which sucks, I love Twitter. But while I had hoped the Trump mania would have subsided by now, it has not.
Believe me, I like to be as informed about the current state of things as anyone. But I do that these days by reading The New York Times and The Economist daily and weekly, respectively. I don’t need all the incessant talking in circles and hot takes that Twitter offers. Nor do I want it shoved in my face in real time, all the time. 
So thank god for the new “mute” options Twitter unveiled last week. I don’t believe they’re live yet (at least not for me), but having granular options to mute certain keywords and/or people for set periods of time is great – exactly what I was looking for
Holding out hope that these tools make Twitter great again.
