How I kicked my smartphone habit, and never looked back | The Memo

Here’s what worked for me:

Working days: 08:30 – 12:30, 13:00 – 18:00 (All social media blocked with a 30-minute gap at lunch).

Politicians blocking users on Twitter | Jon Worth
The thing of course is that getting stats on who blocks whom on Twitter, and why, is a bit of a mystery, as – understandably – Twitter does not want to make a list of “accounts that blocked me” easily available. I tweeted to ask my followers for experiences, and replies piled in – Paul Bigland about Michael Dugher, Gary Pepworth about Diane Abbott, Nissemus about Tom Watson, Andy Hicks about Natalie Bennett, and a whole bunch of stories in Brighton (thanks to Jason Kitcat, Richard Dingle and Emma Daniel). Erik Griswold weighed in with a US example, Mathieu with a French example, and Davide Denti with an Italian example from within his own party. Mark Thompson also has an old piece about the issue on his blog here.
