Quitting Social Media Again

I have a hard time focusing for longer than a few minutes at a time. I haven’t been writing blog posts, I haven’t been writing podcast episodes, I haven’t been working on my books, I barely read books anymore. While I can’t tie it back to social media specifically, I know in my gut that Twitter and Instagram are the reason.

I deleted my Twitter and Instagram accounts back at the beginning of 2021, but created new accounts a few months later. For some reason I thought it’d be a different experience or that I could somehow do social media better”, whatever that means.

Is social media anything more than a bunch of people seeking attention or people who want to complain about real or percieved injustices?
