The Death of Twitter, What’s Next and Where To Find Me

The Death of Twitter, What’s Next and Where To Find Me

Today, we pretty much witnessed the death of Twitter. So, what’s next?

I’m going to make this short. There is no need to for any type of postmortem. We all knew this day would come.

I’ve been chewing on this for a while now. Trying to figure out the best way to keep in touch with people; figuring out the best way for people to keep up with whatever I have going on.

Twitter was easy. It just allowed me to dump whatever I had on my mind in a way that was conducive to my flavour of neurospicy. The other platforms I use just don’t do it in the same way for me. The next easiest thing for me is to restart the whole personal blog thing. I already had the domain and the website created to do this, so here we are.

My blog will once again be home base. It will be where I do the majority of my brain dumping. It won’t be structured or subject-specific like Disabled Kitchen and Garden or like when I had Geeky Pleasures. I won’t worry about SEO or any of that. It will just be a good old fashion blog like in the before times.

Though, I will continue do some writing business specific posts from time-to-time because I like writing those sausage-making posts and this is the natural place to do it. When I’m back to recipe development and if they are disability-friendly, those will still live at DKAG. People can easily filter out personal and business posts on the blog’s index page.

This isn’t to say I’m abandoning my Mastodon account or my BlueSky account. You can still find me there, too. But they will never be the vomitus number of posts that Twitter was. I will never post the same things across platforms because my autism is such that I can only say things once without coming undone, even in type form. I cannot expect people to follow me on both or even use to them to begin with. At least here, you can use the little sign up to post via email and read or don’t read on your terms. Plus, this content is self-hosted on my own server, and I don’t have to worry about some fascist getting angry and burning it all down.

I am sad to say goodbye to Twitter. On Jul 28, 2023, at 5:30:24 PM PDT would have been my 15-year Twitter anniversary. It would have been nice to make it that long. Alas. All good things must come to an end.
