“For my own peace of mind, I recently did a massive Twitter purge. Usually, this undertaking is a pragmatic one: A prioritization of voices to quell the overall noise. In my case, though, it was a matter of neurotic self-preservation. I know that there are all sorts of complicated reasons why people get ignored on Twitter, ranging from safety concerns to finer points of identity. I know the difference between exclusion and rejection. I also fully get that some people are so inundated that they can’t possibly respond to each and every query; this is the readily apparent nature of Twitter hierarchy. And there’s a vast sense of entitlement in thinking that anyone should engage with you. But we’ve all had the experience of finding out that a peer has unfollowed us, or felt rebuffed after trying to strike up a conversation and failing. It’s not a good feeling. And it’s in the very DNA of social media.”
