Social media moves at a mind boggling pace. It's literally mind boggling because if you tried to keep up with every trend or every story that's in the conversation, you will get confused, dizzy, and eventually sick. It is known.

Well, we knew this before. I like to think of my life in two divisions, pre-March 2020 and post-March 2020. Pre-March 2020, I knew about the speed at which content moved, but what surprises me now is that there's possibly no cap as to how fast the people on social media can consume content. Post-March 2020, people have been online for longer durations. As socialising "irl" becomes non-existent, everyone's attention has been turned towards finding new things to obsess over online. This is a great thing because people have the chance to care about more stuff, right? But I think there's a bad side to it. There may not be a cap on how fast we can consume content, but there definitely is a cap on how much we can process. I've been pushing that limit myself, but it may be time to stop. Question is, how?
