Here’s who I mute across on Twitter. I don’t mute people often, and there are a lot of accounts (like bad politics people) who aren’t even in my radar because I live in a bubble and rarely ever see them. But anyway...:
Celebrities like Chrissy Teigen. I’ve found her annoying since day one, though I don’t think she’s evil or anything and am fine seeing her in other forms of media. Same with Jameela Jamil.
People who post a lot and are always negative, as well as verbose and serious. I don’t mind that they need to express themselves. It just makes me feel anxious.
Two people who I suspect are psychopaths, who I don’t follow, one of whom I used to know. I know they’re funny, but their bad intentions are obvious after awhile, so I actually feel depressed when I see people giving them favs...like we’re always gonna glorify bullies, especially masked in forms we find appealing or in forms that we use to rationalize that “that person’s not that bad because...” because we’re all bored and need to be entertained. I’ve turned them into metaphors, and I’d rather just not be reminded across all accounts.
People who deeply creep me out.
A couple of people I follow who do not seem bad to me, but they post a lot, and they seem to really want attention above all else, but not in a vulnerable kind of way that I might find endearing. I find them annoying but also kind of depressing. Like this is it, huh...
I’m opening this back up again and trying very hard not to remove any blocks…I will just not read anything over again, the same way that I’m unable to re-live moments back in time. If I think of myself living my life online like that, then it makes everything seem a lot better. The ability to curate, edit, privatize, and delete is sort of limiting in that way.
A disturbing thought I just had was what if you got paid in Bitcoin every time someone had some kind of fantasy about you…maybe that is how work will function in the future.
I've also been thinking about these tweets:
After I moved to Seattle, I felt a lot more popular online, and a lot of the new followers I had came from the East Coast of the U.S. Partially, I think that's because I probably felt more comfortable expressing myself online since I had distance from people I followed, and likewise, I think people felt more comfortable interacting with me since I was far away. I get kind of nervous when I see someone who has similar interests as me and lives nearby.
what if there were intelligent personal assistants like Alexa or Siri but they were all based on adorable animals...and their voices came out of results from experimental research about what adorable animals would sound like if they could speak human languages. Also, you could pick from different human language accents, like you could have a personal assistant named Suzey (Maine Coon cat, born in the US, raised in the UK) with an English accent
when I think of myself as an animal with fur, like a cat or bunny, I feel immediately better about the world
There's some guy at work who I think asked me an elaborate (and I think fake) work-related question just to talk to me, and he said 'HI!' to me in a really intense way as I passed him in the hallway today. I wonder in the future if people/artificial intelligence/whatever will note these kinds of tiny interactions that will probably go nowhere and will not belong to any kind of narrative.
I treat everyone as a friend because I view everyone as equals (Sun in Aquarius, Mercury in Aquarius in 11th). I wonder if this means I also flirt with everyone since I am also supposed to be a flirt (Venus in Aries in 1st)
I am not very practical or realistic, and I have difficulty with followthrough (The few Earth signs I have are for big dreamy planets and are not personal planets)
