How Disposable Are Your Thoughts

Jay Springett writing on his own site:

Your thread is great! But it is also ephemeral, temporal. It might feel great to see all the shares, likes and comments and follows rolling in. But the reality of twitter the way that the platform is designed. Is that no one is going to be able to find it again in a weeks time. And in a month or so no one is going to remember it all.

This right here is why I’ve favored posting personal posts to my personal site. In the world of social media, your thoughts are quickly forgotten and that’s by design. For small inconsequential things, I’ll post to Twitter or to my Instagram story. But, for anything I value, it comes to my personal site.

This is because I have control over it. I can index it, I can search for it, and I can quickly find it. I can also dictate how I want it shared.
