“Practice social media distancing”

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic required many people to use “social distancing” (standing six feet away). Many people also practiced “social media distancing”—staying away from social media such as Twitter. Facebook and Instagram.

May be that moment, when you mistake social distancing for social media distancing” was posted on Twitter by ஈரோடு நாகராஜன் on March 3, 2020.

“Practice media distancing” is a similar saying.

Might I suggest ‘social media distancing’? Get the f*** off of social media and stop listening to every crackpot rumor, conspiracy theory and rant from any nut-job with a phone and a thumb.
