Henrik Carlsson's Blog

As I’m moving away from Twitter, there are some things that have been locked in over there that I want to move over to my own blog. One such thing is a few screen shots from Breath of the Wild.

I still haven’t figured out a good way to ”Rube Goldberg” my tweets from the Switch to my blog. It’ll likely be something really low tech in the end.

I’m getting back into playing Breath of the Wild again. Yesterday I started searching for one of the last lost memories. I was sure I knew ruffly where it was so I looked around like crazy but couldn’t find it, so I had to give up.

Today I made another attempt, realized I was looking in the wrong place and also where I should look an low and behold, I found it! I thought about googling it multiple times when I got frustrated but now I’m so glad that I didn’t. The feeling of accomplishment was really intense when I found it.

I’ve now turned off the plugin on my blog that syndicates my posts to Twitter. I don’t know yet if it’s temporary or permanent.

I’ve known for quite some time that I need to cut down on my Twitter usage. Most of the time it doesn’t make me happy, doesn’t make me feel more closely connected with my friends and doesn’t make me feel like I’m caught up on the news. In fact, the only thing it does is make me feel angry and frustrated. It keeps me in this loop of outrage, disgust and the feeling of moral superiority that so many of us are a part of and help feed.

CPG Grey has made a great video on how we spread and feed anger and it perfectly captures how Twitter feels to me.1

So I need to cut back on Twitter. I started a while ago, probably a year ago, by deleting Twitterrific from my phone and computer. I allowed myself to dip back into it from time to time using Twitters horrible web interface and for a few months I kept it casual. Then I reinstalled the app for a while, removed it when I realized that it started taking up too much time again but from that point on I haven’t been able to keep myself away from browsing via the web.

That is where I am right now. I mindlessly check Twitter whenever, wherever, and I always come across something that makes me feel bad or angry or sad or outraged.

With syndication off that would mean I would just be a passive spectator and that would hopefully feel like such a waste of time that I don’t even bother going there.

Cross your fingers for me!


  1. If you don’t feel like this regarding Twitter, good for you! I’m not here to convince you to leave. Nor am I here for you to convince me that I’m wrong.

Pay no attention to this, it’s just a test.

Thank you for your reply, Daniel. I’m glad you commented on my description of the environment and situation I was in.

Thank you for your reply, Chris. I’m glad you liked the idea and I agree on how powerful it would be if feed readers picked up the conversations. That kind of integration of post and replies is one of the benefits that the silos has today.

Let me know if you do take the time and make your own microcast.

Tänk om det var Obama som var POTUS och det var hans twitterkonto som stängts av av en anställd. De som hejar nu hade nog inte gjort det då.

That’s a really cool example of displaying comments! I have added a line about you to the IndieWeb comments page, please edit if you have more to add about the displaying behaviour.

Thanks Martijn! It got the idea for this from the P2 theme. I tried it out a week or so ago to try to solve a different problem on my blog and while it didn’t help with its intended purpose, I did really like the inline comments.

This thing that Google does where links in search results are actually to their own URLs and not the permalinks is just pure crap!

I just saw a year old article about Pinterest buying Instapaper. I had completely missed that.

A few years ago I was an avid Instapaper user and I cared a lot about it and its future but as I had less and less time to read the stuff I put in my queue my interest decreased.

(While recording this I tried so hard to not say Make the Mac Great Again or something similar. In fact, I tried so hard that when I listen back to it its absence is so clear that I just have to make that the name of the episode.)

Just made a spontaneous purchase of Shovel Knight for the Nintendo Switch. It was 20% off right now so I figured why not?

I had planned to do a microcast per weekday now, but today there won’t be an episode. I’m just not in the mood for it, my brain is preoccupied with too many other things and I’m way too tired as well. Hopefully I’ll get back on schedule tomorrow.

Implemented a few small changes on the theme of my blog, the biggest one being inline comments on the feed pages. Still some bugs to fix.

@johnjohnston You use SemPress for your blog, right? Have you encountered the problem that the theme adds titles to title-less posts and that those titles then F-s up the Micro.blog syndication?
