In which I pull back from Twitter a bit

It's possible to get too wrapped up in Twitter.

I think I was starting to. This weekend, for several reasons, I held off posting to my Twitter feed, and I read some of the people I know on Twitter, but tried just to dip into it. I'd acted compelled to catch up on hours, sometimes days, of messages and eventually told myself Dude, how much blogging nutrition are you getting from this?

I've also disabled my automatic Twitter-dump that created an entry an LJ day based on whatever I'd posted to Twitter the past 24 hours. Maybe I'll reinstate it, but it really wasn't adding much over here.

Twitter has its uses, but Twitter isn't Best In Life.

  • I can do stuff while feeling low

    After posting the earlier entry, I did a walk. And an errand. A combination walk-errand. I needed to return a library book, Beverly Cleary's…
