My strategy for using Twitter in 2021 means using twitter.com and Twitter's official apps as little as possible. Instead, I rely on a couple third-party apps and services for a better experience: NetNewsWire and micro.blog.
If you've never considered using anything other than Twitter's official offerings, you may be asking why anyone would do such a thing. I'll give a couple reasons below.
In an attempt to find balance between the digital and analog in my life, I've inconsistently maintained a bullet journal for the last couple years. I initially fell in love with the analog approach to staying organized, but as time went on, I couldn't help feeling as if something was lacking. Also, I'm accepting that, while I love the idea of writing more by hand and unplugging when possible, the practice is quite time-consuming and inefficient, especially if I plan to later type my writing to archive digitally or post online.
Recently I tried migrating my bullet journal practice to iA writer. While writer is a great app, it's focused on one thing: writing. Unsurprisingly, this experiment didn't work, so I found myself wanting something better. This searching is what led me to give Obsidian another shot, primarily as a planner.
