Alan Jacobs — re-setting my mental clock — seems to be going through some of the same stuff I am in regards to Twitter and blogging, although he is a real writer and and a real good writer, so he carries more weight. Go read what he has to say.
Like me, he has switched to micro.blog as both a Twitter and blog replacement. I am eager for the day I can turn Twitter off entirely. It will probably happen soon, when Twitter makes life unbearable for the third-party apps.
And, with ayjay, I applaud @manton and others who are working to free me from corporate entities. Link: IndieWeb is where it's at!
