In short, taking back control

Yesterday, I wrote a very short post about photos of the moon that didn’t have a lot of point to it other than ‘wahey, photos of the moon!’ I realised that previously, I might have just tweeted something like that, but I don’t know if you’ve noticed, Twitter is going through some stuff right now.

Some people are sticking with the social networking site, others are abandoning it for alternatives such as Mastadon. I’m still using it because I like the premise and most of the big accounts I follow are all still active, but am keeping a wary eye on developments and what the next move is to drive the service into the ground.

Things like this make me realise that it’s always the blog you can rely on. This is my space, my little corner of the internet where I can write about whatever I want - whether that’s lengthy and important posts with great thought behind them, or just a brief celebration of that grey lump of rock in the sky. Twitter may come and go, but will remain!

Meanwhile, I hope Twitter does recover one way or the other. It’s not perfect, by any stretch, but it’s such a familiar and easy tool that can also show you the best of humanity alongside all the other stuff. Fingers crossed!
