Friend: Are you OK? You haven't posted on Instagram in ages
Me: I quit FB, Instagram, and Twitter.
Friend: Why'd you quit the internet?
Me: Actually I've *rejoined* the Internet.
Next time someone asked me why did I leave the internet, I'm gonna say I'm still very much on the Internet. When are *you* coming back?
@kavbojka Facebook/Whatsapp/Instagram and twitter are like AOL back in the 1990s.
@kavbojka wow, that's so true.
love it, gonna tell this to anybody who asks me about it :)
@kavbojka good one
@kavbojka reminds me of this article from 2015 :(
@kavbojka I hear the situation is even worse in Myanmar, where Internet.org and mobile tie-ups lead people to think "the Internet" = "Facebook" 😮
@kavbojka people like to pathologize bad websites
years back someone was saying i "rage-quit the entire internet" because i stopped posting on one website
