Goodbye Twitter…

posted in: Computing, General, Politics | 0

Earlier this week I deactivated my Twitter account.  Why?  It’s not because I couldn’t keep up with the readership, it was, time.  The man that made up my mind was our President elect, Mr. Trump.  While it is no secret that I’m not his biggest fan; it is his seemingly unfiltered approach to twitter that caused my reservation and ultimately the deactivation of my account.

When I saw the tweets that he was putting out, naw…I don’t ever want to be in that position.  The guy is smart, very smart.  Unfortunately; his tweets, to me, work against him.  Once you put something out there, whether it be Facebook, Twitter, email or any other social platform; once you hit the submit button; that information is gone, and you have absolutely no right of privacy once those 1 & 0’s have left your computer.  There is no expectation of privacy when dealing with a medium connected to the internet.  If you feel your emails and Facebook messages are private – you are only fooling yourself.   Just ask the DNC.

I don’t follow others on Twitter and only my cat followed me, so I’m sure the twitter community will not be in despair.

Goodbye my little bird…goodbye.
