Well, I forgot to post about my Twitter removal experiment yesterday. So that’s a great sign. It means I wasn’t thinking about it enough to post.
This might be my last post on the experiment unless I suddenly find myself using the app again. What I’ve learned is that I miss the content (not the tweets and commentary) shared on the platform. I also miss the distribution channel. However, both of those problems seem solvable.
For fetching links to content there is the awesome service Filter Rss. If that had a feed reader UI and the ability to send Tweets without going to the Twitter app, it might be a great solution.
I’m about to start a new project so I’ll definitely be posting updates about it on Twitter, but I won’t be using the app. I’m hoping that I can get similar interest generated by posting updates on my new project here.
If there’s one great thing, this experiment has made me more active in the IH community.
