There are all kinds of apps and even built in OS features on phones now that will break down exactly how much you’ve been looking at the thing and in what capacities and for what purposes.
Tracking screen time seems to be a very weird thing our generation is into. We gather this information, we treat it as though it means something, we monitor it as though to ensure we are moderating, but the truth is, we do nothing with the data obtained.
Except keep looking at it. And marveling at it. On a screen.
In the spirit of that, how about you keep looking at your screen a little longer today and enjoy these funny tweets from nowish!

1. Time to stop
Oops, that’s enough for now.
There’s just not enough time in the day

And with that, it’s time to stop looking at this particular screen and start looking at a different one. You know. For my health.
What’s your screen time like? Do you actually do anything about it?
