"I can't leave social media platform X, all my friends are there and they won't move!"
@Mycroft aahh, yes
@Mycroft When I left Twitter, I left behind a dozen or more friends with whom I didn't really communicate in any other way. We just stopped talking. I miss them, but I don't miss them enough to subject myself to Twitter.
My mental health has dramatically improved since leaving Twitter behind, and I've made new friends here of whom I'm deeply fond (yourself included ♥️)!
Ultimately, true friends will encourage you to care for yourself, even if it means more distance between you as a result. ^^
@Mycroft that didn't stop me leaving Facebook. My entire family was on there, and I hit "delete" anyway.
@Mycroft awful logic lol
The way I see it, they're not much of a friend if they're not willing to settle for texting. I gave a bunch of people my number before quitting Facebook.
@Mycroft I really like "Famous person XY isn't here? That social network has to be garbage""
@Mycroft I had some Twitter friends but then they got drowned out in TL noise sometime in 2015 or 2016. So coming here was a fresh start for me.
@Mycroft I'm hanging onto false hope that Twitter won't kill their API. But that's probably false hope indeed.
I'll likely spend a lot more time here when they do!
This instance is focused around the furry community, and is open to anyone interested in it. It was created by @Tiwy57 originally for a small group of furry friends, but thought it might as well be open to all fluffies and scalies !
