Except for political pundits, general politics doesn’t belong on Twitter. It’s of little value to followers and is a negative to most . The Hacker News guideline, “If they’d cover it on TV news, it’s probably off-topic”, applies to Twitter too.
I had to stop following @paulg because he posts too many political items. I disagree with many of his opinions and agree with some. But whether I agree or not is irrelevant. His tweets on general politics are negative for me because most are of negative news e.g. . There’s exceptions such as his raising awareness of a death penalty case, which was good .
