So, my name is Dan. I have a Twitter problem.
Until yesterday, my Twitter feed contained multiple news and opinion sources. I tried to follow some from "both sides" of our political divide so as not to live in the infamous ruinous bubble. But "both sides" is an outdated concept, since one of the two sides (the conservative one, at least as that word is now used) is fragmenting between the nationalist-populist-Trump cultists and the Reagan-Bush types. Almost all of my right-wing sites were of the latter sort (only the main Fox News feed represented the former). In the middle and on the left, I tried to follow people with some expertise who were not just loud.
Recently, I found myself becoming increasingly agitated every time I would look at Twitter, which was dozens of times per day. In my home state there's a special election Senate campaign that careens between farce and tragedy on an hourly basis.
