Thank you for the detailed response.

Right now my main focus is dev.to and twitter.

Benefits of dev.to are self-evident, which you have so eloquently described. But how does twitter help you? What do you expect to gain from twitter?

Comparing Instagram, Facebook, and twitter and where most developers write then you will find that most user twitter.

All of them have the problem that they are too crowded and it is hard to stand out if you are not doing it for 10 years.

But still, most frameworks and people have a twitter account :)

Right, too crowded and too noisy. You hit the nail on the head.

But still, most frameworks and people have a twitter account :)

I suspect a lot of it has to with the inertia and herd mentality. No one wants to miss out, even though they are unclear about the value and dividend it has to offer.

Also, Instagram is about pictures and Facebook now is for old people 🀣

Now but in general I think developers just like text more than beautiful pictures.

I don't want to read blurred pictures of text because Instagram compression is so heavy.

So it also has to do with the format.
