Installed Threads and immediately saw a bunch of random messages from people I don’t follow just because someone I do follow replied to them with two words or an emoji.
Tried to post to tell people to follow me on Mastodon but Threads just crashed over and over every time I tried. 🤷🏻♂️
Oh no now every time the timeline reloads it’s different posts and most of the time it’s all stuff completely unrelated to anyone I’m following. You know, just like Instagram. Why on earth would anyone want this?
Why do so many people here seem so eager to jump to Bluesky or Threads? Why did they leave Twitter if they’re so eager to jump to different evil companies and their algorithms?
Seeing the Twitter 3rd party app news, I pulled up Tweetbot this morning for the first time in 3+ days.
I used to open it in every free moment during the day. If this change isn’t a “bug”, it’ll be the final nail that causes me to never use Twitter again. And my life will be better for it.
I tried messing with Mastodon and it just immediately didn’t seem like what was next for me. 95% of what I used Twitter for was news, sports, tech RSS replacement and not the social part of social media. I personally got zero of that from Mastodon right now.
