Deleting Twitter.

Welp … I did it. My @randomcha handle is no more. I’m really, really going to miss it. Or at least what it once was. E**n M**k is on there right now openly fraternizing with filth and treating his employees like garbage, and I have no desire to wallow in the muck with the planet’s richest moron. I hope he burns the place to the ground and loses billions in the process. It certainly feels like we’re watching it implode in real time.

I will say that I’ve genuinely been enjoying my Mastodon experience thus far. Hope to keep connecting with various cool people! Find me on there: @randomcha@mstdn.social.
