I took a break from Twitter. It was like taking a break from Anthrax.
There is a whole movement dedicated to unplugging from digital devices on the theory that they are turning us all into slack-jawed, empty-eyed, pasty-faced zombies. Having explored that option fully, I recently experienced an extended break from digital connection. This was not due to any virtue on my part. It was in a medical setting that allowed no phones, no laptops, no exceptions.
