I applaud your decision to quit social media and I agree that it can cause all sorts of problems. But just to play devil’s advocate here, many people include Medium right alongside Twitter and Instagram as social media. They have a point. Maybe I should remove the app from my phone, because it’s too easy to keep checking it. I’m always reading or bookmarking up to 40 stories per day to read later. That definitely cuts into my writing time. Do you feel like you have a lot more free time now?
