Yesterday I talked about my first day of having the Twitter app deleted from my phone. I mentioned I would likely build an app to let me send tweets without having to consume from my Twitter feed. I did exactly that today. I built a simple command line app to send my tweets.
But that’s not what you care about. You care about how I’m handling this crazy, surely short-lived, experiment. Today, I noticed something interesting. I found myself adding sites to my Home Screen more than I ever have in the past. Without Twitter as my central content ingestion network, I’ve been visiting a wide range of sites. To help, I’ve added those sites to my phone’s Home Screen.
Side note about this: Not nearly enough sites leverage the progressive web app experience. Sites I would expect to do so include this site and Hacker News. However both are nothing more than bookmarks that live on your Home Screen.
Anyway, I survived another day without Twitter, my creativity has not taken a hit, and I’ve been exploring a lot more outside my bubble.
