A few years ago, I went to Glastonbury Festival and quite enjoyed almost a full week without using my smartphone. Now I’m quite cynical about the concept of digital detoxes (or indeed, any kind of detox) but that’s not true for everyone. And sometimes – looking at you, Brexit – we can hear too much about a topic, particularly on Twitter.
For this problem, there’s now Supermute. Install this plugin, define your time period and your term and then any mentions of said term will be muted for up to a week. Voila – you can live Brexit free (at least on twitter) for a week or more.
Now, if only someone would create one of these for the broader internet – or my annoying neighbours!
