At the end of last week, I started thinking hard about how I was spending my time. I would log into social media first thing in the morning and stay logged in all day, tweeting constantly in particular. Everything else that I was doing was happening between tweets, basically, and many of those tweets were in argument with toxic folks from the alt-right who seek to poison our social discourse.
I’ve been trying to figure out how to continue to engage with the news and stay in touch with my community without letting the staccato rhythm of Twitter dominate not just my writing, but my thinking.
I haven’t gotten there yet, but I’m working on it.
