pondering… twitter has been a great source for links (in addition to other things). gonna have to find a way to compensate for losing that.

on being a twitter user and complicity


  • users are the product. advertisers are the consumers.
  • even if i don’t sign in, my account is a statistic.
  • twitter has failed – over and over – to take action against harassment, racism, misogyny, and the like
  • twitter owns the content i create on their site
  • not signing in for one day doesn’t affect their bottom line
  • as much as people say “this site is trash,” no one ever leaves
  • there are many alternatives to twitter


  • i’m going to delete my account in 1 week. i’ll likely set up an autotweet to go once or twice a day until then
  • follow me at, or on, or email or text if you want to stay in touch

this sucks. i’ve been on twitter since february 2008. i’ve met some really cool people on here, and in a lot of ways it’s provided me with relationships and a community that i’ll never have in meatspace.

but in the grand scheme? staying here is only making things worse.

maybe i’ll get back into tumblr again, idk

The president is killing Americans by sabotaging the ACA

Mid-week link bc this is immoral, even by Trump’s standards.

Trump to end key ACA subsidies, a move that could threaten the law’s marketplaces

Just like Mike Pence in Indiana, Trump’s pandering (against the council of healthcare experts) will cause many to die and more to suffer.

The slightly-less fucked up part of this is knowing that when the ACA marketplaces begin to fail BECAUSE OF THIS DECISION, Trump’s going to say it’s Obama’s fault and not his.
