No more retweets for me

This article was written in 2015. It might or it might not be outdated. And it could be that the layout breaks. If that’s the case please let me know.

I don’t primarily use Twitter to follow celebrities, to promote myself, to look for deals, discounts, and promotions that are of interest to me, or to learn more about Twitter. I use it to follow a list of people I find interesting. I like to read what they’re up to. And I like to click on the links they post.

Yesterday when I looked at Twitter it looked like I was looking at someone else’s timeline. It was filled with people I do not follow. Lately Twitter has more and more turned into a retweet fest. It never really bothered me too much, but yesterday it got on my nerves. So I decided to disable all retweets. Unfortunately there is not a disable retweets setting. So I disabled retweets from every person who retweeted something into my timeline.

And now Twitter is this relaxing, silent place.
