I'm not sure if I'm in the market for replacing twitter with another microblogging platform. It feels a little like this way of communication is good at some stuff but bad at most stuff.

I was never on MySpace. I barely use Facebook. I was on Tumblr, but deleted before the takeover. My Instagram has eight posts. I am never going to have a TikTok or a Mastodon account. I have curated Twitter to be absolutely perfect for me. If it dies, I will be sad.
In all likelihood, Twitter will fail whale soon. Once it goes down, I’ll wait until Automattic or Substack or someone else decides to take it over. I would rejoin a reconstituted Twitter with better, smarter leadership. I won’t go and “learn” a new social media service.
If Twitter never comes back, I will be sad. However, it’s not like I don’t have other things I should be doing instead.
