app quits are public statements by individuals announcing they have publicly quit using (and uninstalled/deleted) specific (often "native mobile") apps (typically silo owned or created) either with intended permanence, or temporarily.
Statements of intent
- now primarily using Feedbin for reading, with subscriptions to twitter-atom and instagram-atom.
- added a tiny bit of code to Red Wind that uses Pushover to send real time push notifications when webmentions are received.

Best thing I've done so far in 2017: delete both Facebook and Twitter from my phone. Kindle and News promoted to top spots instead.

In particular, leaving behind a lot of the toxic content makes me feel lighter and happier already.

- Facebook Auto-Posts Application "installed" Activities But Not "deletes" Or: A 420 Limit Makes Me Blog
Such UI pollution (trivially encountered at that - if it's that obviously buggy, I can't trust it as a client app) was sufficiently offensive to make me delete the entire app.
