Turning inner space into outer space

You don't need a Twitter account for Twitter news

One of the main reasons many people stick with Twitter is that it offers a stream of breaking news. If you can't wait to know about the latest developments in, for example, an election, Twitter news updates are as good as it gets.

But if that's the only reason you're maintaining a Twitter account, feel free to delete it. Go to and log out. You'll be left with Explore and Settings. Explore has a News tab with links to trending news developments. Chances are, the news you want will be one of these. If it isn't, use the search bar. This works even for local news — just search the community you're interested in. Adding a hash tag can be helpful.

This is where I'm at right now. I haven't deleted my account, but I'm logged out. Whether I go ahead and delete the account is up to the new owner. I'm keeping a close eye on what Twitter turns into.
