Downsizing Twitter

Last night I started down-sizing my Twitter account. Here’s a few things I did.

  • Deleted all lists from my account - I had a few lists for different things which are now all part of my timeline.
  • Switched to RSS feeds for organisations - Any accounts like Github are now in my Feedbin account. It has better control over the order and filtering of feeds than Twitter.
  • Purged who I was following - If unfollowed you don’t be offended. If I’m still following you don’t get too excited. I’m expecting to cull this list again.

I suspect that I’ll always have a Twitter account, but I’ll be interacting with only a couple of times a day. My main source of news and updates will be through other places like Instagram, Feedbin and of course Micro.blog
