    I consider Twitter to still be a valid platform for a professional outlet. I follow around 50 people and that's it. 95% of them are designers and they tweet about design only (mostly). Twitter is like any other open social platform, you get what you make out if it.

      I used to follow a max of 100 people, all professional / industry peers and curated that follow list pretty regularly too but the toxic stuff still found its way through for me.

      I guess mileage may vary on it but to be honest, I put a lot of effort into my Twitter life and found it just didn't matter in the end. I do miss the friends I followed but the negativity became too much for me and I made a choice I don't really regret for 99% of the time.

      Now I tend to follow a few slack channels and I do find myself signing up for a lot more email newsletters than before.
