It makes me uncomfortable how people have adopted corporate language when talking about themselves on the internet. You are not a corporation or a persona. You are a whole person.

You don't have a "brand" – you have passions and interests. You don't "create content" – you share thoughts, words, ideas, knowledge, and a whole galaxy of other things.

There are plenty of people out there who want to categorise you and put you in a box. Don't help them to do this.

You're so much more than that. 💚

@InvaderXan i feel like us IT folk are at least partially responsible for the use of the word "content"

there's many such words that seep out from our programmes into the world. "user" is definitely one of them that i also resent a lot


We can’t solely blame IT for their jargon escaping. A lot of blame lies on the self-described “social media gurus” who used to infest early twitter to “help you build your brand.” 😒
