Problem: The Hellscape Bird Site is bad for my mental health, the mental health of others, and probably society at large.
Problem: it’s where the “action” is, lots of people I know online are only there and nowhere else, and it is occasionally valuable for news esp. in the tech world.
I can’t leave and I can’t stay.
Solution one: unfollow lots of people. good but people are still going to retoot shit into your timeline.
Solution two: mute like a mofo. better maybe. manual effort.
Solution three: fix our culture. unlikely in the short term.
