On Twitter: A Modest Proposal

So, you hate Twitter—and what's more, you love to hate Twitter. You thought it was great when it was powering the Arab Spring but now you worry that it's addictive, unhealthy and inequitable.  You find too much hate on Twitter, and too little diversity. You think tweeting is a pointless waste of time, and you are annoyed by the platform's random notifications. You fear that Twitter is killing literacy, contributing to mental health problems, threatening Enlightenment values and undermining democracy.  In short, you have come to see Twitter as the end of the world as we know it.  Here's a modest proposal.  Stop using it.
