Twitter Is Back on My Phone

Eddie Smith:

It’s because I created a worse problem by removing Twitter. My desire for news and information didn’t die when I took Twitter away, and I began using the Apple News app. This turned out to be a horrible idea because no matter how much I tried to curate and tell Apple News what I wanted to see, it filled my “You” tab with mainstream headlines of death and disaster. The unfortunate reality of a news aggregator is that by the time you cover every tragedy in the last 24 hours, there’s no room for anything else.

Google Now's stories section works surprisingly well for me. For some reason, it insists on showing me news about Kendall Jenner, but apart from that, it does a good job showing me stuff I'm interested in, and focusing on relevant stories, instead of inundating me with a brain-numbing stream of statistically rare, effectively irrelevant news of bloody murder and salacious mayhem.
