"How I took back charge of my social media"

From mid of 2018, I made a significant change in my approach towards social media. I started customising my social media settings with the tools made available by each platform and the smartphone I use.
As I kept experimenting with this approach, I cracked my way out of the echo chambers I created around topics that kept me fixated, unsettled, outraged or even angry. This new approach has significantly improved my work life, personal life and my life on social media itself.
The feeling that I had until about half a year ago that we are all being consumed by social media has faded away and I am glad to report that I now use social media to my advantages.

Time for a pre-turkey #tweetstorm on the biggest positioning/flows driver in the US #interestrates and #bond markets, and it’s a monster. 1/
As always, some background. This story starts in the #Eurodollar futures markets, which are basically bets on where 3m LIBOR will settle on a given day. E.g., a Dec 2019 ED contract pays based on where 3m LIBOR is on Dec 16, 2019. 2/
When expectations of 3m LIBOR fall, ED prices rise and vice versa. So the price of an ED is like a bond in that respect. 3/

1/ Happy Monday Twitter. ⚠️ #tweetstorm 🌪️ #alert ⚠️

My #LegalGeek #FOMO peaked when I missed @nwaisb talk on #AI #hype which is still ALL OVER MY TWITTER FEED. Plus now I have #ACCAM18 #FOMO so here's a bunch of 🤔re #AI, #MachineLearning, #EmergingTech #hype, and #marketing.
2/ As @ZachAbramowitz thinks there's no fun in agreeing: no, I don't think @nwaisb / @KiraSystems & others have benefited (on net) from the AI hype. I'd say hype hurts us all, bc it trades short term gainz to a few players for long-term pain shared by all.
3/ New entrants can feel the need to build #buzz for brand awareness + brand lift. I wouldn't exactly disagree this may help new offerings generate leads + fill their pipeline. Piggybacking on an existing trend with #hype is a shortcut to buzz, BUT with many pitfalls ⚠️

Learn more about our new study, “Computational noise in reward-guided learning drives behavioral variability in volatile environments” (goo.gl/BtNAXR), with @FindlingCharles, @vasilisa_skv and @StePalminteri! #tweetstorm #preprint 1/16
When tracking the value of actions in volatile environments, humans make seemingly irrational decisions which fail to maximize expected value. Existing theories attribute these ‘non-greedy’ decisions to information seeking – a.k.a., the exploration-exploitation trade-off. 2/16
Based on my recent work with Jan Drugowitsch on the origin of behavioral variability in probabilistic reasoning (goo.gl/hqtUf3), @StePalminteri and I reasoned that non-greedy decisions may be caused by computational noise in the learning of action values. 3/16

1/ What's wrong with #lawfirm compensation? Let @jordan_law21 count the ways.As predicted 🔮 (by me, about what I was going to do 😇), a #tweetstorm. First the link: law21.ca/2018/09/how-co…
2/ Next, my favorite #micdrop 🎤 quote: "law firms incentivize their lawyers to act in ways that are counter-productive to lwayers' happiness, clients' satisfaction and the firms' effectiveness." and 💥goes the 🧨-- more #truthbombs follow.
3/ 💯 agree that legacy compensation systems (and the attendant infrastructure of #tech, #process, #policy, governance as well as resulting #culture) emphasizes #lawyer effort over #client outcomes (namely, the billable hour). BUT I add here: what would be a better #alternative?

💪A thread on amazing Twitter threads 😍👇
In the process of revamping my #Twitter profile (dormant earlier), I have come to appreciate the wonderful underutilized platform it is!
Some threads contain crisp knowledge capsules that can help many. Starting 1 on such curated content
1. I largely rely on this: threadreaderapp.com to find content
2. What I wish to share is what coincides largely with my interests- #Learning, #Investing, #Behavioralpsychology (#mentalmodels, #bias, etc), #Businessbooks, Industry insights/case studies, Life experiences, etc
3/n
While it will be difficult to structure the order of content here, I will try to block threads by category (as noted above & more). Feel free to comment with any good thread that you would have come across. Cumulative learning always helps.

I write tonight to express strong reservations about @FERC’s approach to MOPR and state policies. #FERC is approving #CASPR, for all of the wrong reasons! Follow me below into the #TweetStorm
I disagree strongly with the order’s suggestion that state sponsored resources must either be subject to a Minimum Offer Price Rule (#MOPR) or some alternative mechanism for “accommodating” the effects of state public policies.
That rationale—which is not adopted by a majority of the Commissioners that support the order—is ill-conceived, misguided, and a serious threat to consumers, the environment and, in fact, the long-term viability of the Commission’s capacity market construct.

0/ So I have a #strategy quiz tomorrow, and while making notes I thought I will create a #tweetstorm with the major interesting take aways.

I am doing this coz it is also a great way for me to learn (as mentioned by @farnamstreet in this blog: fs.blog/2012/04/learn-…)
1/ A company can outperform rivals only if it can establish a difference that it can preserve. It must deliver greater value to customers (cost advantage) or create comparable value at a lower cost (differentiation), or do both.
2/ Activities are the basic units of competitive advantage.

You know what's crazy, Trump said he was draining the swamp. And he may inadvertently do it.

What we're seeing, here, isn't a new leadership attitude from Señor Trump, we're seeing what our leadership has been for years. Trump is just an arrogant blowhard, which (contd)
-in business, actually benefits, cause weak minded sycophants to money and power, cower in front of men like Trump.

Trump has shady business dealings, which we could trace back to the 80s. You who else had shady business dealings? The Bush family, The Clinton family, (cont'd)-
And so on and so forth. The @GOP has been trying to shush Trump, cause he's laid the political leadership playbook open: shady international deals, ilicit behavior, all of which lead to.immense personal gain, which, in the past were lied about and glossed over through a veneer-

1/ Right, I thought I'd have a go at a #tweetstorm. The thread covers my PhD research @Swinburne & @ICRAR into how #galaxies evolve. If you’re into space and/or interested in what astronomers do, read on. If not, well you never know what you'll like so take a peek anyway...
2/ BACKGROUND: One of the great discoveries of the twentieth century was that our Milky Way is just one of billions of galaxies, each one different from the last.
3/ Despite this diversity, galaxies in the local Universe mostly fall into one of two categories; either they contain large amounts of gas which fuels ongoing star formation, or else their gas has been exhausted and star formation has ceased.

(1) #TakeAKnee, #NFL. The NFL submits to the Social Justice Warriors among them, giving them $89M to stop being spoiled brats. #AnthemProtests

(2) This reminds me the 1960's on college campuses. The professors "laid down" in the face of radical protestor demands, rather than being responsible adults. We all saw (and see) how that went.
(3) Just over one generation later, the academy has become completely leftist, and the students run the asylum. Or perhaps as accurately, the academy has become the asylum.

C’mon @JimCramer, there’s PLENTY of proof that @verizon is slowing down! Ready for a #VerizonSlowDown #tweetstorm?
#VerizonSlowDown 1/ @verizon is no longer the best network! We swept them in OpenSignal (only 5B real-customer tests!) #ReadEmAndSweep
#VerizonSlowDown 2/ + the new speed of VZW network (bc they can’t handle unlimited) is…sad. While $TMUS is America’s Best Unlimited Network!
