Nibel on his decision to leave Twitter
“I have miscalculated the value of my Twitter activity and realize that it is nothing worth supporting by itself for the vast majority of people. It is not me who is popular, but it is that work that is useful. It is not valuable by itself, but a comfortable timesaver, and I get that now. I was unable to create a reliable revenue stream, but l’m still happy I gave it a shot. And I want to thank everybody on here who gave me a shot as well. I’ll look into refunds for recent payments, have already deactivated the billing and will likely close this page this week.”
The unidentified user also cited the billionaire Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter earlier this week as a factor in his decision to abandon the social media site. Nibel has previously complained about the Twitter platform, citing challenges he’s had with impersonating accounts because he can’t get account verification.
