I rely on social media too much. I’m that guy who closes the Twitter tab in Chrome because I’m bored of looking at Twitter, then opens up a Twitter tab to see what’s going on in the world. I’m guilty of over-sharing, adding hashtags to my Instagram for likes, and just talking at people.
So I’ve hit the metaphorical reset button on my Twitter account. It’s a fresh start. All those following-me-because-they-don’t-want-to-hurt-my-feelings people can be free and my Twitter account can just be about having conversations with people now.
Going from 2300 to 0 followers was terrifying, but I’d rather have 50 followers I speak to frequently than 2300 strangers I just talk at.
I recently realised that it just doesn’t matter. Twitter is made up. It’s nothing. Your follower count is just an arbitrary number. What matters is the social part.
I don’t want to talk at people, I want to talk with them. I want to engage in real, meaningful conversations instead of just posting a link to a picture of some flan I just ate.
Heck, I’m speaking to people more already. Admittedly the majority of these people are asking me what the fuck is going on, but that’s fine. It’s a new beginning.
If you want to talk, follow me on twitter.
