Bye, Twitter.

Centralised social networks are ephemeral.

Bye, Twitter.
Mastodon logo.

Centralised social networks are ephemeral. They arrive, they grow, they peak, and they decline. Remember Friends Reunited? Remember MySpace? Remember Bebo? Instagram is getting hit, from all directions, by TikTok.

Now, look at Twitter. Its new owner is the architect of its deserved decline.

My Twitter handle, @stuarticus, is scheduled for deletion. (That's assuming there are staff around to manage the system that handles deletions.)

Hello, Mastodon.

So, I'm now over on mastodon.social as @stuarticus.

I've also created an account on the Singapore-based kopiti.am for Singapore Buses and removed Singapore Buses from Twitter.
