    We might be seeing the death of microblogging platforms

    So I've never been super big on microblogging, mainly because it's hard to get any engagement. You basically have to be extremely terminally online and build a cult of personality around yourself for people to listen to you, and I don't like that shit, it's not like a forum where you can just...

    Rant about anything, anything at all.

    The fact that I almost posted a paragraph about how much I hate when people insist everyone else gets along with them even though a lot of people dont like them and its blatantly obvious that that's so kinda makes me think, "am I in the wrong?" and now that I think about it, no, no I am not...
