By the time you read this I will have gone.
The beginnings of a suicide note. I have not departed this Earth. I have, however, departed from Twitter.
For two or three years it had taken over my life. I had become obsessed and obsessive. I have not read Joran Larnier’s book about deleting your social media accounts, but I am aware of the endless, obsessive scrolling, the often inane exchanges (though there is humour, worthwhile stuff and bloody kittens).
My attention was absorbed in some mindless and unreal relationship. Potentially liberating and supposedly giving me a voice but at the same time it gave no voice. The violent normailisation more pervasive than everyday life.
So, I’ve gone. Destined not to return.
