Sharing Everything Is Too Much

G. Keenan Schneider on Hating the Internet

Social media has convinced us that any thought, regardless of effort taken in developing it, is worthy of publication.

I think I have shared this post before, because it is full of relatable content and take away quotes – but this one hits perfectly.

When i first started with twitter seeing all the “just heading to yoga” tweets because almost everyone I followed I knew personally and the service as a whole was pretty quiet. Knowing things about the people you wanted was enjoyable and easy to get through the noise.

We now live in a time where everything is regurgitated onto your time line, there is no way to filter specific types of tweets, and the platform as a whole is full of noise. As such I have to move further and further away from the platform I love.

Not least becuase the service is determined to surface the most polarising and “engaging” tweets into my timeline and its all a bit too much.
