How a death made me appreciate the uniqueness of the friendships Twitter makes possible.
Beautiful. Sorry for your loss. The friends we make online are no less real and their absence causes no less grief.
This is a wonderful piece. Thank you
This. Thank you for sharing.
In my mind Twitter is in a state of “rigor mortis.” And because I don’t deal well with dead things, I’ve refrained from engaging there for months
I’ve deleted (and ghosted) a few twitter accounts now that contain real friendships... and while I have not died, the characters I played as those twitter accounts, died when I deleted/ghosted the accounts. I was friends with a lot of people who I imagine wonder, from time to time, if I am still alive. The human is; the character is dead. RIP twitter friendships; they are very, very real.
