For me it's Timehop. I'm kinda addicted to it (currently on a 762-day streak) 🙈 What's yours?

@de @syswarren No I deleted Timehop so long ago, I'm all about living in the present. That said I consider Instagram a "Guilty Pleasure" because I can't count the time I spend on it productive yet I'm on it soooo much. I love their AI filters 🤓

@abadesi if you spend 5 minutes a day on Instagram, it adds up to ~1 day in a year. :D

@de I'd say Instagram or Snapchat lol trying to spend less time on them though. Soo impressive with Timehop! I would never last more than a few months.

@abdullah_mallak Haha, lots of people saying Instagram!

@de @abdullah_mallak Delete it off your phone until it's not a habit, then when you redownload it (if ever) keep all the notifications off. That has worked for me - I honestly barely even check it now.

@de @dennis2 I have the notifications off for almost a year and a half, it's the habit of scrolling endlessly that I need to overcome. but yea might give the deletion a shot. thanks a lot :)

@de Twitter. Wasting too much time there. Punished by the Flying Spaghetti Monster recently by getting kicked out after a series of unfortunate password errors after my phone got stolen. Starting fresh now maybe it will help me kick the habit a bit.
