I am having another Twitter break: I have them from time to time.
(And I often get teased for this, and rightly so, as I mention I am having a break and then something happens to get me tweeting again.)
I was going to have one last week, when the further Brexit extension was confirmed.
But then the Assange story resumed and, as it happens, I know a fair amount about that case by reason of blogging about it in 2012.
The Assange stuff, however, should now be quiet for a short period, while the Swedish prosecutor decides on whether to revive the case given that Assange is again available.
I also now have this new blog to play around with, and I would like to post more here. I think I am tired of tweeting (and Twitter tells me I have been on there some ten years, which is scary).
I realise, of course, that posts on here will not get as much circulation as tweets which “go viral” – but, frankly, that may not be a bad thing. You can get into a rut with anything, and perhaps it is time to do more long-form writing on here and elsewhere.
If something genuinely significant happens I will go back on Twitter. But I am bored of tweets, for now, and the atmosphere on there is often unpleasant. People can be so nasty with such ease.
So this post is just a marker of intent: not every post has to be earnest and an event!
Thank you for reading me on this new(ish) blog.
