That was the message I received, weeks after Norm Gregory had died. Twitter updates, automated via apps, posting information to followers. It was as if Norm was sitting in his La-Z-Boy recliner at home, boasting of his Twitter following. It seemed very wrong. There are so many negative things one can say about Facebook, SnapChat, Twitter and other platforms. These sites have become overly political. There is a lot of venom spewn in conversations online.
I have canceled my Twitter and Facebook accounts. A few months ago, a former KJRB/KTAC/KBSG radio personality requested his name and info be scrubbed from the PugetSound.media blog. He was cutting the social media link. There may have been thoughts of conspiracy theories involved in his decision and I tend to agree with that line of thinking. In the big scheme of things, data collection has and will continue to negatively affect the lives of millions of people. Simply think of the hacking of credit card accounts and websites. I am all for cryogenics. I would choose to be frozen if I could live again, after a cure for crotchety old man syndrome is found. But, do I want to live in perpetuity as a recurring Tweet?
