No more retweets for me

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.
