i’ve finally exited twitter

I finally decided I’d had enough. As I’ve written earlier I’d been visiting the site fewer and fewer times. The last gap between visits was nearly three weeks. That was the point I decided I might as well cut it loose. I’d already asked for and downloaded a full copy of all my tweets, going back to 2011, or 12 years. It took nearly three days to get the archive, and when I downloaded it, I looked inside it once, and haven’t looked at it since. That was back in January. You can’t just kill the account. You have to go through a process of deactivation, and then wait 30 more days. If after 30 days you haven’t logged back in then your account is deleted. I guess that’s to give you a second chance to reconsider your choice to leave.

Sorry, I won’t reconsider. I have my tiny corner on Mastodon, and that’s quite enough for me.
