@jack I'm not leaving twitter either, but I'm not going to check it for a while – or forever.

@hjertnes I've reduced checking Twitter a few times a day. Convinced myself that I'm using Twitter rather than Twitter using me. The illusion is working for now :)

@jack Makes sense. I have decided to remove a few things from my life. Mainly stuff I do that I don't enjoy and can't explain why I should be doing them.

@jack Great post. That’s pretty much exactly how I feel. I'm not leaving Twitter, but I am reducing my reliance on it... Wrote about it last night, actually.

@jack Well reasoned post. I’m linking to it in something I’ve got coming later (it popped up and perfectly illustrates part of what I was writing.) We all have to make our own decisions as just blindly following the pack serves no one.

@sketchbookb Nicely written Bob. We all have to find our own way.

@sketchbookb Love your post. I'm sure I'd be fine with just a combination of RSS, micro.blog, and Nuzzel. Not quite there yet though.

@hjertnes I am okay with leaving Twitter alone. I am not going to abandon it but I am not actively using it either. So it is like Facebook for me.

@JeffPerry @jack @sketchbookb Good thoughts on the matter…I like the idea of leaving Twitter, but realistically just want to cut back for now. As for Facebook, I've deactivated my account, but have it "parked" so I don't lose that venue for some old contacts if I need them…
