Social media communication rant
I just figured out how to turn off the "send read receipt" that appeared in the last update of my text message ap and I am over the moon. That shit was burried deep in the bowels of my ap settings. Who thought that was a good idea?? You know how anxietous it is that someone else knows that you've read a message and you haven't responded right away? I left Facebook messenger because of that shit (amongst a host of other nefarious issues).
some pictures and a short article:
