People that have known me for years know about my on again and off again relationship with Twitter. Well I have finally found, I think, a balance with the use of it. It seems to be working rather well this way. All I do is follow some local, national and international news sites, some of which are visible in the picture. I follow 15 at the moment. I don't follow any individuals, I don't DM anyone and I don't retweet. I don't really tweet anything besides my blog post. It turns out this makes for a rather useful and pleasant Twitter experience. Every morning I scroll through my Twitter feed and see what happened in the last 24 hours. Sometimes I'll check it at night.
So if you find that your Twitter use is raising your blood pressure then maybe you should just unfollow everyone and add back just a few news feeds. Because who really needs 500 hundred retweets in their Twitter stream of the same news article.
