I’ve been using Twitter for years now it’s become a bad habit. I don’t remember the last time I actually learnt anything or got anything of value from browsing the site. It doesn’t stress me out, or work me up like it does some people, but it’s such an incredible waste of time. I’m going to aim to stay clear for a while and see if I can do something more productive with my time.
