Not long ago, maybe a year or so, I irrevocably deleted my most active Twitter account. I decided to do this as I was disconnecting myself from the IT world as I settled into writing. The account was mostly based around IT work, programming, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and such since that is generally what I did for a living.
When I deleted the account, I was following about 2,000 and had around 1,000 followers, mostly verified to be human, though it is hard to do that for that number of accounts. But away it went as I just got tired of seeing the constant barrage of what was going on in the world of IT because I just didn’t care about it anymore.
So, now that I have been writing for a while, I decided to rejoin Twitter and build my profile around writing and poetry. I put in my email address, and to my surprise, I found I had created an account in 2011 and barely used it. I had had a Twitter account for 10 years that I had completely forgotten about.
As I browsed through the history on that account, I found that I did use it briefly for Raspberry Pi projects and model railroading information but not much more. Though in that short time, I had added followed a lot of people through those topics.
So, a week or so ago, I spent an hour cleaning up that Twitter account and now have it down to 107 Following and 72 Followers. I am in the process of rebuilding it around writing, poetry, and other cool things like that. To know who you are reading, check my freshly updated About page.
