I use twitter predominantly as a way of identifying arseholes.
It does stop me having to talk to people though, which is never a bad thing because they often talk back.
There is some good stuff out there but you have to come across it and then bookmark it. And sometimes I use double-spacing for no reason known to anyone. And then I hardly go back to the bookmark because there’s something good out there if only you can find it.
Tinder is occasionally hilarious. My view is that anyone who puts it out in the public domain now has to learn to have thick skin and put up with it just as Stephen Fry did recently. It would be good if someone could work out if the propensity to arseholedom is linear/static in a population or if other factors make it highly variable.
As for here, I think this post slightly mirrors Ant’s view above: it almost seems obligatory that I don’t just read in the distance but occasionally write.
