Sweet Tweet Feat

As I mentioned in a blog post, I’m taking a break from Twitter for month so no Saturday Tweets today. I’m thinking I will bring a link feature back but without using Twitter for a few reasons:

  • Some people have trouble viewing my Twitter re-posts.
  • If Twitter ever goes out of business or I get “deplatformed” for some reason I’ll lose all the posts that I’ve put up.
  • Twitter has devolved into shouting and makes me want to shout too, so I’m going to reduce my use of it and, perhaps, only follow a few folks whose work I admire.

In the meantime, please enjoy this photo of our cat Buck in his usual demented mode.
