Weighing in here about Twitter.

I think the user experience on Twitter has definitely deteriorated somewhat since Elon Musk took over the company — at least it has for me.  It just looks like the algorithms have changed for what appears in my newsfeed (or the scroll, whatever).

I seem to be reading far fewer tweets from people I want to hear from, and far fewer tweets that I enjoy.  I’m reading vague yet grandiose religious tweets … if you know me at all, you know that those don’t appeal to me.

And I’m being targeted by spam in tweets for the first time ever.  It’s happened only a couple of times, though — so I shouldn’t complain too much.

Maybe I shouldn’t bitch at all.  Twitter is free.  (And, no, I don’t think I’ve ever made a purchase due to advertising on the site.)

But I will say this — it definitely isn’t as fun as it used to be.
