This won’t be much a discussion post. It’s really just me sharing my thoughts and what led me to get rid of my Twitter account. I don’t want to be one of those people who make a big deal about leaving social media. However, with it being such a big aspect of our lives, I was thinking why not talk about it?
Why am I leaving book twitter?
Simple, my mental health and my time.
When I say my mental health, I really mean it. There is so much drama going on while on Twitter and sometimes it becomes too much. There so much talk of canceling people and harsh opinions of books that I enjoy. And honestly, there were so many harsh comments about the genre that I love. Seriously, why do so many people talk shit about the romance genre?! I know I should have tougher skin, but why should I when I can just get rid of the thing that brings my mood down?
I spoke of time earlier. Here are the three main things I’m juggling. The job I transferred to a few months ago, trying to fit in reading time, and trying to be present in my relationship. With all of that taking up my time, I was hardly even logging onto Twitter.
Moving forward, I will still be on Instagram and Goodreads. I always gravitate towards those and don’t really see that changing any time soon. I always have a better experience and interactions with other book lovers there.
I know this is short, but I hope I got my reasons across here. If you read all of this, thank you!
