It’s interesting the world we live in, 12 years ago when I joined Twitter it seemed like a great place to bounce ideas off people, ask questions, and see what people are working on. Now it’s a highly politicized platform I can’t use without seeing some politician, celebrity, or influencer spouting their talking point or opinion, even if I don’t follow them. The news is the same way, I remember when the news presented the news in a balanced way.

I avoid discussing politics. I have my beliefs and everyone else has theirs. I have the intelligence to not post about politics because I never know where I am going to end up work wise. I can work with the most outspoken conservative or liberal as long as their political beliefs remain theirs and they don’t try to push them on me.

Twitter has lost its value to me, I’ll be deleting my existing account and leaving up a blank account to retain my username in case things ever go back to the way they used to be. I doubt they will, but you never know.
