While social media can be a great way to connect, online harassment and trolls can sour Internet life; however, a new Twitter bot is trying to make self-care important part of your life online.
The bot, which you can find on Twitter @tinycarebot, offers gentle reminders to its followers to improve their health and well-being. Some examples of their encouraging messages are "breathe deeply please" and "please remember to look up from your screen."
The bot was created by Twitter user @jonnysun, who explained in a tweet that he made the bot easy and tangible self-care reminders because he was "o bsessively on twitter lately."
Since the account was created four days ago, it's garnered close to 25k followers. See some of the best self-care tips it's recommended below.
