Is it inevitable that social networks reflect all our human failings? I'm on Ello because I log in for a few moments a day and see beautiful things. I'm a refugee from Twitter, which has become a constant drumbeat of nastiness. I don't want to bang that drum myself any more, or listen to its beat. So for the foreseeable future I'm going to filter out the rest of the internet and use Ello as my place to connect. So we will see if all social networks ultimately empower the worst of us, or if this one can be something better.
