We rely on Twitter to help us express our thoughts and keep up with the news. And with Twitter’s Apple TV app (our 2016 App of the Year), we’ve also got a bigger window into current events and topical discussions. From breaking-news tweets to live Periscope feeds—and even Thursday Night Football—the benefits of that little bird are always getting bigger.
Real News When I Choose!
When I was 27, my life fell apart. I was holding on by a thread. I was in such emotional pain, I also took on everyone else’s pain around me. Watching the news was so heartbreaking, it made day to day function even more difficult. I realized then, “The News” was all about bringing all the horrors of life to the surface with a continual loop of the most sensational and horrific pain. I had to turn off the TV, cancel the news paper and even stop reading magazine covers.
Somehow, even though I took myself out of the news loop, I managed to know all I needed to know about what was going on in the world and as I headed from the wounds of my early adult like, I was able to engage in a better way with life, without getting sucked into the despair.
Today, I’m 72 and I find Twitter has been the most objective way for me to engage in what is going on in my country and our world. I know who to follow to get the truth of the things that are important to me, without getting caught up in the horrors and despair of life. Life has often been difficult for many people, but I find twitter a more comforting way not only to learn about it, but also to know what can and is being be done about it. It helps me know what I can do personally and also when I have no power, who to follow that does have the power to change things for the better.
Can we mute Coronavirus trending topics?
I enjoy Twitter a lot, and since being quarantined at home, my daily usage of social media platforms has naturally increased quite a bit. I have been able to mute tweets containing the words “coronavirus” and “COVID” and things related, but I wish there was a feature to mute entire trending topics about the virus in them instead of just tweets. The majority of the things in the “For You” category on my account are all related to coronavirus and it’s making me feel anxious and hopeless for anything positive in the future. I just don’t want to see them anymore
I understand wanting to keep everyone with the most up to date info as possible since we are navigating a pandemic, but I’m worried for people with mental health issues like anxiety and depression. Constantly seeing things related to COVID coupled with being at home and possibly jobless (or essential without having time to breathe right now) can really exacerbate thinking and behavior that people with certain issues have had under control before now.
I understand if this is something that can’t really be done, because I know news outlets and other sources are talking about it all the time but I wanted to at least try doing something. If it isn’t possible I’ll just uninstall for a while.
