Many years ago I signed up for Twitter because I thought it would be fun. At that time the phrase “don’t be evil“, was embraced in Google’s corporate code of conduct and we had a warm, fuzzy feeling about the social media companies. Well, things have changed. The fun is gone and the arrogance of social media companies has grown unbearable. They may have thought they had a good reason for censorship but their actions are scaring the rest of us. I no longer trust social media companies to do the “right thing”. In this brand new world, it makes sense to review my privacy exposure and get rid of any social media I am not actively using. Goodbye, Twitter.
I got a new Samsung 9 recently. I transferred all of my applications to the new phone but never got around to turning on my notifications. Now I am not sure if I ever will. Naturally, my favorite feature on the new phone is the AR Emoji.
