Why go to all this trouble myself, instead of letting Twitter’s algorithms do > it for me? Isn’t that what Big Data and Machine Learning is for? Ostensibly, > yes, but as we’ve seen, absolutely no. There’s a deeper point here: I either > take responsibility for my own consumption and learning, or I abdicate it to > machines. And I believe that abdication to machines is amongst the most > pressing dangers facing our society today.
Curating our own feeds has become a means of survival. I use a similar strategy as Schwartz, except mine also includes disabling all retweets.
