The Medium Is a Mess

It’s time to have a break from social media and/or probably abandon the most vicious ones. Of course, autoposting will continue – and that’s it for now. I’ve never been into Мордо(р)книга, i.e. Facebook but I did enjoy Twatter Twitter. After we, Russians, elected Danila Trumpov aka Donald Trump, subverted every election one can possibly think of and pushed Western liberal democracies into a schizodelic Russomaniacal frenzy the mission is complete. It’s time to rest and spend sweet Putin’s money.

What do we have next?

Tumblr? You must be kidding!

Google+? See Tumblr.

Gab? Too autistic for me.

Minds? See Google+.

Pinterest? I shared pics from my blogs there.

Instagram? I use it from time to time to show pics of Russia that I take randomly.

Reddit? Better deaded than Reddit! See Minds.

I watch YouTube videos in English and Russian on politics and cultural topics, etc., but I don’t upload any content there.

VKontakte, which I liked at some point, is the most anti-free speech platform I can imagine – a VK landing page with an ‘inappropriate’ post can literally land you in jail. Facebook and Twitter still have a way to go in this regard. Big Brat never sleeps!

So I have 3 main platforms that I’d like to focus on:

This blog: RussianUniverse.org

My blog in Russian: Armeyskov.com

My Telegram channel (also in Russian): t.me/cargoculturology

It is used to sweeten products such as drinks, candies, cookies, medicines, and toothpaste. Saccharin derives its name from the word "saccharine", meaning "sugary". The word saccharine is used metaphorically, often in a derogative sense, to describe something "unpleasantly over-polite" or "overly sweet" (Wikipedia).
