Memories of Twitter

Deleting my twitter account was liberating. If you’ve been reading these blogs you’ll know I’m on a mission to delete all versions of my digital self.

I was thorough, deleted every tweet, unliked, unfollowed and unretweeted. DELETE.

But I really did enjoy twitter for many years.

Then twitter started sponsored tweets and relentlessly asking for my phone number; but it really isn’t twitter’s fault, it just got me thinking.

Making me aware that I could often be found wandering around in my day trying shape ‘interesting’ things to tweet. I like me better when I am not thinking about ‘followers’.


Funny isn’t it but now I have an archive of my thoughts. It’s a bit like Dumbledore’s Pensieve!
