It looks like I made the right decision in jumping off Twitter when I did. This weekend, the site cracked down on a number of right-leaning people, and even feminists who boldly made statements such as “men are different than women”.
The platform has gone full crazy, even deactivating the account of Julian Assange — who doesn’t even have internet access.
As a response, popular blogger, Glenn Reynolds took down Instapundit’s Twitter account, no longer going to be using the site. Instapundit has been extremely valuable for disseminating information in the culture war from articles on interesting topics (such as Twitter censorship) to promoting the books of your favorite Hispanic author (me). With Instapundit off twitter, the site again becomes a duller place just for alt-left shrieking at the president and for trolls to harass people. There’s no other point to the site at this point and it’s best to declare it dead.
I recommend anyone get off twitter. It’s enemy territory. It’s just for angry mobs and its “like” function actually does addict you via producing dopamine in your brain when you see something’s getting traction on that level. It’s useless for selling, it’s useless for conversing.
I’ll be on my private Discord for my patreon supporters and on MeWe for the most part. It’s more fun, you should come join us.
Speaking of fun. My book Make Science Fiction Fun Again is available for Pre-Order, and is out this Thursday. Come join us in celebrating fiction that’ll entertain you.
