Twitter was annoying me. My phone buzzing way too often. Then I figured out that I could hit the web, turn off the “mobile alerts”, and dial it down a notch. This is great! Now I get the stuff out of the twittersphere only when I want to. Don’t get me wrong I still have a few friends that buzz me.
Now, it’s the best of links to only the info-tainment that I want. Cool! Learning more about the city, business, music, and people that I want to.

@nathanfinochio “My brother turned to me last night and articulated a meta-thought, a massive over-arching thought, on modern leaders that blew my mind. I had asked him about a recent pedological conference he attended, and he observed an irony in a number of the speaker’s choices of quotes. “Millenials don’t read, they quote”, he exclaimed, after describing a Reformed pedant who proof-texted Chesterton in quoting him.” 3 tweets from @nathanfinochio
