Quitting social media

In March of 2019, I quit social media cold turkey—and I didn't go back. Yes, I have an account in Twitter where I spend a little time every week, but I no longer have an account anywhere else, no Facebook account, no Instagram account, no Tiktok, Snapchat and whatever else is out there. I am glad I made the choice and stuck with it. I have even severely limited my WhatsApp availability, but I'll tell you more about that another time.

Update: I quit Twitter again shortly after but in 2022 I caved and got an Instagram account.
