A Social Media Fast

Several people I know occasionally remove themselves from social media for a self-imposed time. For example, not tweeting during ramadan or lent. Or simply taking a break right after realizing that the experience turned toxic.

And this toxicity seems to be a feature rather than a bug of social media. Misinterpretation of statements both too quickly written and read, is commonplace. I have certainly messed up once in a while.

So I try to only be positive, not comment while I have low bloodsugar or feeling low.
Social media is for little BBs of encouragement. Everything else is noise. And lowering the noise sometimes is good.
