Previously I turned off all social media, including Twitter. Some life changes happened and now I have a new job and it's remote.
Remote work sometimes gives me feelings of isolation. I turned Twitter back on to attempt to lull that isolated feeling.
The way I keep myself in check is by constantly asking if someone I follow is one I'm truly interested in or if I could turn that off. I removed a couple hundred followees(?).
Future Remote work is a fact of life for the forseeable future, if I eventually needed to find work my Twitter network is a good one to tap.
Self Promotion I'll likely utilize Twitter to do some self promotion on technical topics to reinforce the long bet I'm making on remote work.
