Since removing Tweetbot from my iOS devices I’ve found my relationship with Twitter has changed. I’m now out of the loop of checking my feed multiple times a day to see what’s happening. I said I would be off social media but I’ve failed, but it has been a positive in my use of it. I’m now much more intentional about how I’m using it. I use Safari and only look at my notifications. I’m no longer aware of what’s happening in real time and because of this I’m ok with checking in maybe once or twice a day as opposed to the maybe 10 times before.
If like me you want to reduce your time on social media, delete your apps and restrict yourself to using your browser. Once you break the habit of using apps your usage of the platform will become more passive.
