I feel like I need to reinvent my media consumption patterns. Get rid of all the news and politics and fill it with friends, hope and niceness. Me stressing about the state of things doesn't really help anyone and I feel most activism I want to do is most impactful on an IRL level anyway.

@map Being off Twitter has reaaaaally helped for me.

@d yes. But I also miss the friends I only hear from on there. Maybe it's time to unfollow a lot of accounts and clean up.

@map I'm thinking about visiting Twitter again and performing a radical cleanup, only keeping the follows that pick me up or are real people I know
