There's always been a lot of virtue signaling on twitter but lately, it's really gotten out of control.

Virtue Signaling is when you do the right thing but only because you specifically want people to pat you on the back for doing so. It's when people make it a point to brag about how nice they are to everyone. Back in the day, people would say "I checked my privilege" with a straight face and, of course, it was all just a signal that it was time for everyone else in the world to applaud them for being so open-minded and progressive. It's not the virtue that bothers me. It's the signaling. It's the insistence that the world applaud someone for doing something that should come naturally.

It's gotten to the point that I don't even want to talk about my day anymore. I don't want to hear about how other people can relate to whatever it is that I deal with. I don't want people to express sympathy if I'm having a problem. I don't want advice. I don't want to have to deal with the portentous seriousness with which people discuss the world. I don't want to have deal with people who assume that they can understand me. Twitter has become a 12-step program that I have no interest in experiencing.

I just wish it could all be fun again.
