Public Service Message Regarding Twitter and Other Social Media Platforms

This brief public service message regarding Twitter and other social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram is for those who value their time, privacy, and mental health.

Even more concerning, psychiatric studies have shown that social media use has negative effects on our mental health and causes anxiety, depression, stress, and digital addiction. For more information, visit the following links and watch the embedded videos below:
