Sometimes you choose which social app to open based on
- who you want to talk to
- who you want to hear
- what you want to talk about
Sometimes you’re just shouting into the void. At those times, I figure I’ll choose the void that feels less exploitative.
That’s part of why I still have a blog. And why I post more on Mastodon, while Twitter is mostly auto-shares from my other networks, retweets, and occasional cross-posts.
(And politics, because I’d rather keep that on Twitter, where it’s sort of the main topic anyway, than on the network that’s still fun. Not that Mastodon is apolitical. Far from it! But it’s a lot more varied than the overwhelming focus on US partisan politics I see on Twitter. And the culture and structure make the discussions at least somewhat less train-wrecky. Most of the time.)
