I deleted my Twitter. I don’t think Twitters in general are evil or anything but I do think that for a person like me (impulsive, given to over-disclosure) they are poison. The brand called me can do without my <140 character deep thoughts, probably, and I can do without having another medium for obsessing about how friends and randoms respond to those deep thoughts.
Today, after years of listening to the song “Strange Loop,” I finally looked up what a “Strange Loop” is. According to Wikipedia (so, salt-grain taken):
“A strange loop arises when, by moving up or down through a
hierarchical system, one finds oneself back where one started.
Strange loops may involve self-reference and paradox.”
Like writing on your blog about how you have deleted your twitter, I guess, or always finding yourself in the same fight because the part of your personality that attracts people to you is the same part that makes them hate you eventually.
