It is traditional, when going off a social media platform, to announce one’s departure. Departure and return, for as we all know, these are pauses, not clean breaks. The unrealness of Twitter, for me, is less about its failure to properly replicate the socioeconomics and general demographics of the world at large. Twitter doesn’t do that, but frankly nor does the daycare-parents population, and that about sums up who outside my household I see on a regular basis.
“you feel like you’re doing something when you’re not” someone said this about smoking cigarettes, too
It's OK, as long as you'll eventually be back on the podcast!
I enjoyed your tweets and your writing. I came to "know" you via bloggingheads. Twitter can be such a noxious space and I can't blame anyone for leaving it. I hope it makes your life happy and as Bruce said below I do look forward to hearing you on podcasts.
