I’ve decided to conduct a little summer experiment.
I’m re-engaging with Twitter.
(Yeah, I never thought I’d say those words either.)
Russia Reviewed will resume tweeting under @theredshelf, though it’ll be much more restricted this time around. Less retweeting and explicitly stating my political opinion, more promotion of the blog and its content. Don’t expect me to tweet frequently, however: summertime doesn’t change the fact that I’m a busy woman; and seriously, my livelihood doesn’t depend on Twitter in the slightest. I’ll leave continual, frenzied tweeting to journalists, publicists, talking heads, and my fellow millennials.
Is this change permanent? No. Do I still stand by my criticisms of Twitter as detailed in Two Working Fingers and a Smartphone? You betcha. Is there a chance I might fly away again, this time for good, disgusted with demagoguery and kneejerk? Absolutely.
Will the coming days be filled with #joy or #regret? There’s only one way to find out.
