Sure, now he tells us...
Heavy Twitter users should walk away from their computers and other mobile devices and stop staring at tweets all day because it’s bad for you. That was essentially the message delivered by Twitter co-founder Christopher Isaac “Biz” Stone on Wednesday.I have successfully resisted the urge to purchase a smartphone or any other kind of mobile device that gives me easy access to connect as I've watched too many people out on the town sitting at a table with a loved one or filled with friends, totally absorbed with their little phones. I fear becoming one of "them," tapping away while life zips by around them. Why even be there?
It’s not the eye strain, neck strain or other physical ailments that Biz Stone is worried about but rather the fact that people will waste their entire day constantly reading tweets.
I need my offline time just as much if not more than my online time, thank you very much. So for now, I just shake my head and sort of feel sad for these kinds of folks who can't seem to just step away.
