The internet was another matter entirely. Not going to web sites was easy, but how do you avoid it on Facebook and Twitter? There's one solution, and it was harsh. But the situation was desperate, and that called for drastic measures.
The Unfollow/Un-like option.
Yep. I did a mass unfollow as the recruiting coverage began. Bye-bye @Huskers. So long @SamMcKewonOWH. And yes, adios @CornNation - a site I even write for.
All told, I must have unfollowed nearly two dozen sources on Twitter on Wednesday. I'll probably start refollowing them this week. Hopefully it shows up in their metrics, though that wasn't why I did it. My reason is simple: I don't want to see it or read about it. I simply don't care about it. And apparently, I'm not the only one who feels that way.
@dexterfishmore FWIW I hate everything about recruiting and if I could never write one word about recruiting ever again that would be swell.
