twitter’s redesign is ugly and has occasioned a dramatic increase in advertising clutter. twitter works — for me — better from outside where, however (and this is an advantage) I can’t post, like or comment.
I use(d) twitter to keep up in areas of some interest to me, and over time assembled a list of interesting and dependable sources, and some good writers, too. I will continue to consult them. here — mainly for my own convenience — are a few of the accounts I followed, and a few I did not follow, but occasionally checked.
