I left Twitter one month ago and didn’t miss it a single time. Reading stories about “Brand Blockers” (Medium paywall) just gives me the feeling that this was the right decision. Regarding the “Brand Blockers”: Instead of trying to block hundreds of thousands brands, maybe just block Twitter? Twitter is full of brands. That’s why I first unfollowed everyone and created a list with all the people I followed previously, which had the benefit of a chronological timeline and no promoted tweets in between.
I didn’t wrote something for the last days, because I was busy with two things. First: Because there are currently semester breaks I’m at work again and there I already spent the whole days coding and looking at screens. Second: I was busy reworking the Medium archive on my German blog. Next to this (English language) blog, I also have a German blog focusing mainly on other interests of myself. I don’t really limit topics on both though.
I just added a blogroll to my website. You can find it here. What is a blogroll? It is a list with links to other blogs I read myself and can recommend to my readers. But this is just the beginning. I would like to hear more recommendations for blogs (you can also send me a link to your own blog). Send me a message via my contact form. I will update this list from time to time when I find new interesting blogs worth sharing.
