I don’t have a Facebook account. I don’t have an Instagram account. I think it might be time to give up Twitter too.

“The tycoons of social media have to stop pretending that they’re friendly nerd gods building a better world and admit they’re just tobacco farmers in T-shirts selling an addictive product to children. Because, let’s face it, checking your “likes” is the new smoking.” ― Cal Newport, Digital Minimalism

After reading The Way Home, and half-way through reading Digital Minimalism I’ve decided to take a break from Twitter for a month to see if it’s something I can live without.
