BARE turns your Twitter timeline into a journal. It picks the tweets that focus on the bare words and not on forms of social engagement - mentions, hashtags, or favorites.

Social media Zen for $1.99/m

Like its bigger brother Murmel, BARE follows the "get-what-you-pay-for" business model. It has no complex pricing plans or hidden fees. Neither will it ever try to track or sell your data to third parties.

Instead, BARE comes with a flat subscription price of $1.99 per month. A small contribution that helps build a sustainable service and ensures your future social media Zen.

On the Web, via RSS, or Email (soon)

Read BARE whenever and however you like. Sign in to read your daily digest, or let it come to you instead. Get a selection of the best stories in one daily email, or subscribe to your personal RSS feed. The choice is all yours.

Bright minds gone bare

I miss the days when good photographers made videos on YouTube that were good & fun to watch. Now they mail-in 10-minute videos, of which 25% is spent touting SquareSpace or some random sponsor. The whole thing has become a YT equivalent of old clickbait blog posts! Disappointing

1. The obstacle is the way
2. Be strict with yourself, tolerant with others
3. Stop caring about what others do/say/think
4. You don't have to have an opinion
5. You could leave life right now—let that determine what you do and say and think
Writing in school: essays you don't care about, written for teachers you don't care to impress.

Writing on the internet: follow your interests to attract your future best friends and career opportunities you would've never expected.
Last time I was at the Hermitage in Saint Petersburg, there were only Chinese tourists there. They came in large groups & locals were upset because the tour operators brought & sold their own souvenirs (Russian dolls, miniatures, etc.) & reproductions, all made in China.
