After seven years, it is time to flip the bird.
I joined the social network in 2009. It was fun. It was lighthearted. It was all the expected adjectives. More importantly, however, people exhibited a healthy sense of humour.
Today, things are a bit different. Laughter appears to have lost its medicinal properties. To quote comedian Steve Hughes,
“Political correctness is the oppression of our intellectual movement, so no-one says anything anymore, just in case someone gets offended. Now you have adults shouting “I was offended! I was offended! And I have rights!”
Twitter doesn’t add the same value to my life as it did few years ago. It obviously adds value to the lives of many others, and that’s great. Long may it continue!
