I’m seeing this post trending: “I Quit Social Media for a Year and Nothing Magical Happened”—I haven’t read it, just commenting on the title: I quit Twitter about two years ago (it was the extent of “social media” for me). I followed 87 people. I quit because reading Twitter made me feel worse than imagining inserting my face into a sewage drain, or injecting raw sewage into my veins, and after a month break (vacation), I felt amazing—the quality of life improvement was massive.
