Pillowfort was conceived, whatever else they say, as a tumblr knockoff that was supposed to be distinguished by having effective blocking to prevent people from having to catch nazi URLs on their dash every day. They finally opened the gates – you don’t need an invite to get a Pillowfort account now.
But who’s using this? Let alone the thing which it was meant to replace. Tumblr has withered on the vine. It’s still my only social media because sweet hell FB and Twitter are you kidding? But there’s literally one tenth the traffic on my dash that there used to be. Everyone is off to Instagram or Pinterest or who knows.
I tried to find something to follow on Pillowfort and it’s been a total waste of time so far. Good for the tumblr sex worker accounts to have a new platform I guess, but that’s not what I’m on social media for. Where are people hanging out now? What’s happenin’ with the kids these days?
