Alternative Title: Self-Cancellation Update
When I “self-cancelled” myself from Facebook and Twitter for Lent (see here), little did I realize what a great feeling of unadulterated relief I would feel to stay off social media for good. Instead of wasting ungodly amounts of time scrolling down through an infinite loop of mostly unfiltered bullshit, I can devote myself to more scholarly and humane pursuits. Also, as a matter of principle, I do not like how a public figure like Donald J. Trump has effectively been censored by louses like Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg. President Xi Jinping can use Twitter, but Trump can’t? Please ….
