Quitting Twitter: https://blog.nindalf.com/posts/quitting-twitter/ Agreed. The expectation of engagement was always there but always lacking. I had the same experience as the OP with low/no engagement to when I did engage I was branded "troll." That with my effort to decentralize my life, I don't think I will be back on that platform.
