Yes, sometimes I also like, reshare content about women in tech because guess what, I'm a human being who happens to be a queer woman working in the tech industry and this affects my work and the work of many of us. There's many accounts only tweeting work stuff, follow them
I respect the fact that people want to not see some content, but they can unfollow and list instead of following and or mute some words. I'm tired of other people projecting their expections on me: not anymore. Also there's plenty of other accounts to follow
Some other person told me I should not block people because it's freedom of information to see what I tweet (because of all the curated articles). Again: Nope!! (also people I block can still read my blog I just don't want social interactions with them)
I also had people come and ask me to write about super specific topics because they needed the article, asking me to test and compare tools and write an article about it, as if I had 48 hours a day and nothing else to do.
There's also all the ones asking for free consulting or free code debugging on code I wrote 6 years ago in a tutorial because obviously if I wrote something for free I'm willing to give everything away for free even my time?
I usually reply nicely because I'm mostly a polite person (unless you really piss me of) but it's exhausting in the end to feel like an article and useful links supplier. Bottom line: not a robot (but a cat, don't forget to feed me)
