I popped back onto social media after a long break, needing to touch base with some folks after my phone broke.
I learned that:
* Twitter is way too full of rage-fairy-ism. I wasn't imagining it.
* Ostatus is better, but not perfect, in this regard.
* I have too many communications channels. I forgot where to find some people, and some of mine were so disused that people started ignoring them.
* My phone is annoyingly central to my getting things done. Not entirely a SPOF, but close.
