What Socials Am I On?

Update (19 December 2022): Well, seeing that the turbulence and volatility at Twitter has only increased since my previous update, and that my timeline is nearing silence, I am now taking a break from the platform at least into 2023. I have also created a new Mastodon profile ( that I may or may not use in the near future. I’ll continue to update this post if anything changes.

Update (30 November 2022): I gave Mastodon a try, but I am no longer on the platform. Huge “thank you” to the folks running instances in the “fediverse”.

As of the time of publishing, I am planning to stay on Twitter for the foreseeable future. However, given the recent volatility of the company managing the platform, that may be subject to change.

While I have tried Mastodon in the past and believe that it is a great platform, the “fediverse”, and decentralized social media platforms at large, do not currently interest me. That being said, I am keeping an eye on Bluesky as well as other social media platforms, including cohost.

Barring Twitter, I’ve historically kept a lower profile on other “socials” (nickname for “social media”). You may have seen me infrequently poke in and out of my real name accounts on sites like Reddit and Discord, but Twitter has been far and away my platform of choice for meeting and talking to people who share similar interests to me.

So, what’s left? While I do not post frequently on LinkedIn, my network there has some overlap with circles that I’ve been a part of on Twitter. LinkedIn would likely not be a Twitter replacement for me, but it’s worth mentioning.

All of this is to say and reiterate: I am planning to stay on Twitter for the foreseeable future and will let folks know if that changes.
