Just some time ago I left twitter (well I was suspended :bap: actually)

I was now wondering what is your opinion on leaving or staying on twitter or other popular social media site.

I left mostly cause the whole thing was just getting too stressful and there was very little I could actually contribute there.

How about you why did you left. Alternatively why did you decide to stay?

Twitters dumb, the people are stupid, and I hate most people anyway.

I have my own sites and friends to seethe at, and don't need the entire internets approval.
Also i just never liked social media anyway. it's gay.

ps: if something on the internet (that isn't your job/connected to real life) starts stressing you out you should probably stop doing that
:flan-yea:

I use twitter less and less
nowadays I only use it for the illustrators I follow, however I haven't checked my notifications or anything for weeks now
I have no plans to quit for now, unfortunately pixiv is not the best option although I am using it more than twitter.

out of those two I only use varis services and interact with the comments of some websites I follow through Disqus.
I don't know much about disqus but at least you can set your account to private so no one can see your other comments or your account info, but they can react and reply to your comments in that site
this way you save yourself from having to interact with unnecessary external people.

Never had twitter, facebook, myspace, whatever, and I know for a fact I'm a better person because of that. Social media is a trap, because it's not actually about being social, it's about judging others in public court where everyone is the judge.

The only enjoyment I've gotten from social media is when furrys, freaks, and other wastes out themselves as pedophiles, rapists, and/or just generally awful people.

before I label you "based" I gotta ask. Do you play Gachas?

I guess my reasoms for staying before leaving was also following artists, some of them post stuff there that they dont post in their other accounts.
That and following on the lolidrama. But honestly its not really worth it for me anymore
Just started a Twitter, got bored with fedi.
Really? May I ask why?

I use twitter mostly for artists and seeing what news is trending, and occasionally digging into some retarded drama/monkey meltdown.
Cant imagine trying to use the site to communicate with other people outside of friends or fans, that seems incredibly exhausting.
The only other "social media" i use often is reddit, mostly for troubleshooting and occasional funnies.

Social media is only really effective in small groups like TS, discord, skype etc etc, massive platforms like twitter/reddit promote cloutchasing and drama outside of small circles

I still have my Twitter, but I use it to follow artists and vtubers and very few games (like Little Witch Nobeta :gurayaya: (I noticed we don't have a Nobeta emote :shake:)).

I don't follow drama because fuck that. Sometimes I stumble upon some drama, but I see that less and less among the dozens of posts of anime girls. Unfortunately, like @Narbray said some artists post (some) content exclusively there.

Pixiv needs improvement before I can use it more than Twitter to find the lewds.

Now, Reddit, fuck that place. Twitter isn't much better but at least I find a good amount of artworks I enjoy there. Reddit can implode for all I care.

twitter is only good for porn & meme accounts and even those are starting to suck
Need to build a time machine and shoot the first Jap artist who thought it was a good idea to start posting exclusively on twitter. That shit is so inconvenient, especially since twitter makes casual browsing impossible unless you log in (and I deleted that shit for a reason, fuck twitter).
