xyzzysqrl recently did a thing about how it's nice to have a dumping ground for short little single-screenshot three-sentence reactions to things, but that Twitter is horrible and worth fleeing with all urgency.
Later that same day I tweeted a dumb little Pokemon Go thing, despite my actual therapist I was actually seeing for actual anxiety/panic attack issues actually telling me that step 1 toward recovery is to stay the fuck off Twitter. I am guilty of having this same problem, as it turns out.
So, in the interest of not being a massive hypocrite after I'd advised my good blogmog friend to bring that stuff here, maybe I too should just use Dreamwidth for my little bite-sized reactions. On one hand, uploading screenshots is a bit more of a process over here, but on the other I would no longer have to edit down if I have a four sentence reaction that's 15 characters too long to fit in a tweet.
So, I'm going to at least try it here and see how it goes, tagged with "microblogging" both in the tags and in the post title. I don't do this nearly as often (before last night's Pokemon Go thing, the last original non-retweet tweet I made was two weeks ago,) but if you don't want even that much extra junk on your reading page, you can... uh... can you blacklist tags? Maybe? Is that a thing people can do?
