Twitter is a strange case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
It drives both optimism and pessimism at the same time. It foretells the future, flashing signs of progress along with inevitable doomsday. One tweet can drive markets and shift national conversations.
Most Twitter users are consumers that use it to discover great content and breaking news. Others abuse the platform to stoke an agenda.
Checking Twitter is the fastest way to monitor the pulse on society. At the same, avoiding it will make your happier and healthier — you may even get your mind back!
Twitter changes how the brain works. It hijacks your attention with the facade of novelty, consumed and quickly forgotten. But your trash may be someone else's treasure. There are gems to be found even in a dump.
