Twitter and RSS Feeds

By now it is obvious Twitter is censoring some of their accounts. I have relied on quite a few to get news every day. So today I downloaded Liferea, a news aggregator for Linux.

I was around before the advent of social media. Where everyone stayed connected through RSS feeds and search engines. My very first ever blog contained the word hearth. Everyone had their home on the internet and comments on blogs and emails were the means of communication. Some have said that RSS was dead – it died on Twitter quite a few years ago – but it is not dead.

I am grateful for those who still have their websites as their home base. You are not subject to the political winds that blow. I was reading one Twitter account today and watched Twitter take it down before my eyes. This is sobering – to see it done in front of my eyes.


Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?”
