Twitter note

Over Thanksgiving break, I decided to quit Twitter. I don’t want to follow the Musk melodrama, nor become invested in the platform given its current instability, nor subject myself to the disruption of threads of people I follow due to the restoration of previously-suspended accounts. So if you’re accustomed to following me there, my account no longer exists. I am not implying that others should make the same choice, and I would not rule out returning in a future year with a brand new account. Rather, I will be fasting from social media for the coming year in search of less cognitive fragmentation and greater mental focus. Already I’ve finished reading one book — Benedict’s The Infancy Narratives — in spare moments that might have been spent twitter scrolling. We’ll see how it goes, but I feel good.
