Loon

Decisions ...

I follow this one guy over on Twitter who uses an auto-posting thing to send out 100 posts a day ... most of which are very interesting "inspirational" quotes. While that's a heck of a lot of traffic in my Twitter reading, I don't mind having the "inspiration". However, every fifth Tweet is a plug for "The Trump Network" ... which means that there are twenty such plugs during the course of a day, nearly one an hour. This makes me NUTS. I'm constantly just on the edge of un-following this guy ... on one hand, though, he's local (so could end up as a useful contact), and I appreciate 80% of his stuff, but the drip-drip-drip of the Trump crap makes it an hard bargain. I'd save a chunk of time a day if I just unfollowed him, but the quotes are appreciated. What to do, what to do?

I suppose that I should take into account that there's no "there" there, since nearly all of his Tweets are being computer-generated. I'd also hardly be the only one bailing on him ... his rate of followers is only about 1/4 of those he's following (heck, I have more followers at the moment!).
