Why I've Fallen Out of Love With Twitter

You may have noticed that I have been fairly quiet on Twitter recently, it hasn’t been intentional at all, I have just found myself getting bored of the platform. 

Don’t get me wrong, I will never completely tire of social media, after all my whole job, blog and YouTube channel revolves around it. It is a fantastic networking tool to get your work out there for people to see but it also gives you the opportunity to get to know people in the community, discover latest news as it is so fast paced and obviously there is the celeb goss, I need my Kardashian fix after all! Is Kylie Jenner pregnant?

It has got to the point that I bypass the Twitter app to go onto different social media channels, I’m not sure whether there is a particular algorithm on Twitter but everything seems to be exactly the same everyday no matter how many different people I follow, I’ve just got bored. I also feel that Twitter has become quite a negative platform no matter how hard everyone tries to be positive and it has had a negative impact on my mood, I’m not sure if it is the January blues that are still in the background or if this is way the platform is moving.

I love how everyone can have their own opinion, express themselves freely but there’s always someone who takes offence to everything and find a spin on it to create debates or arguments. Some are healthy and I agree that they might need to happen but 80% of the time there isn’t any need.

As mentioned at the start of this post, my break was not planned, I have still been on every so often but haven’t tweeted as much as I did at the start of January, I just needed to de clutter my mind and hopefully my love for Twitter will once again return as I have taken part in some fab blogger discussions and have been surrounded by amazing people who are so creative and positive.

Going into February, it is already clear that my mind feels a lot healthier and I am happier to move forward to push my work once more. Funnily, most of 2017 saw me having the same relationship but with Instagram and suddenly at the back end of December I rediscovered my love for the platform despite the algorithm. My creativity has returned and I have figured my own style and have learnt what people enjoy seeing.

Does anyone else find themselves going through phases like this?

p.s. I hope you liked the photos, I wanted to play around and create something a little raw and textured! I love to get creative and see what works and what doesn't every so often, hope you don't mind.
