I don't regret leaving twitter – social media is the Big Tech version of Big Tobacco, they assisted in subverting democracy, and there are a lot of annoying people there. But there are a lot of cool people there doing cool things, and it was fun having them as Internet pen pals.
Fortunately, I can still browse twitter without being on it. I just checked in on Psychic Parrot, a Unity and VR developer (wrote a few books), racing game enthusiast, who apparently has rebranded as Team Monster Games (maybe there are too many psychic parrots - when I searched, all I found was...psychic parrots).
His latest looks fun (a game that takes place in a bookstore!)
