Tech people, should I be on Twitter? It's starting to feel like a huge prerequisite in most places to connect. How much am I losing not being on there?

You’re not missing anything. Especially now when it’s almost expected for you to use the n word as the bar of entry


Left Twitter years ago after being on there for a a few months, the toxicity outweighed the value of some of the content in my opinion. Granted of course that I was younger with a less curated focus of interests. I found that I lost a lot of time looking for content that I actually want to engage with. I find that on more niche or rather more robust content platforms, this just comes to me. Was wondering if there'd be more any more networking value seeing as lot of influential tech people live there basically.

Twitter might not exist in a few years so nah.


Haha, a spicy take right now😂🌶 thanks for chiming in though

I used to use twitter as an RSS feed reader on steroids, but I never used it for networking. I now switched to a standard RSS reader and ditched all the social nonsense I was losing time on with Twitter. It is useful if you want to work on personal branding and/or technical writing and gain exposure - otherwise is pretty useless IMO.


Yes, referring to technical writing on Twitter, it’s mostly people tweeting their articles on Medium xD

The company I work for is based out of a different state. They’re HR team makes more because of cost of living. Well, that has changed dramatically and over the last 3 years my state has soared passed theirs. Our team has not received inflation adjustment and we still make less than the team in our base office because of “cost of living”. My team and I have worked hard to demonstrate this but we are not being heard. The obvious would be to look elsewhere but other than this issue, I’m happy here

I don't want to go the traditional route of creating tiers, because I feel like you should do most of the things in tiers regardless on how much they donated. Can anyone assist with coming up with some ideas?

Also, does anyone know how to create a virtual swag bag?

Thanks in advance.

Validating an idea I had: Childcare loans for working parents. The loans are given to the parents to pay for daycare/nanny/other types of childcare. As the kids grow older, the expenses for childcare drop dramatically. At that point the parents can pay off the loan with a small amount of interest.
Affordable childcare is a pain, and the idea is to make it affordable by deferring payments over a longer horizon.
