Chalk it up to a combination of weariness from decades of oversharing and embarrassment at the sheer volume of my own dumb past social media posts, but I finally snapped recently and moved to a much more ephemeral system (something that Snap and young people generally have been onto for quite some time).
In a nutshell, I’m treating House of Kyle (and the accompanying Junk Drawer newsletter) as my main hub/source of truth, and demoting third-party social media services to act as disposable spokes on that hub.
Here’s how it breaks down…
Instagram: I’ve archived all but a few posts (that I rotate out from time to time), and primarily just use Stories, which automatically disappear after 24 hours.
Twitter: I’m still posting and liking content, but I’m now also using Jumbo here to delete tweets older than 30 days.
See you in the wind!
