This morning The Verge posted a chart of Twitter’s decline (I’m not calling it ‘X’ because the domain is still twitter.com). I still see a lot of honest, creative people posting useful content on the platform, and I still check out tweets sent to me from my friends, but in the last year I’ve also seen Twitter get more and more spammy. Ads in my feed for erection pills, random new followers (I’m guessing bots), and a user interface that hasn’t changed in close to a decade. Oh yeah, and Elon Musk is now offering paid tiers to use it.
As the sharks would say on Shark Tank, for these reasons, I’m out.
