It’s 3 p.m. You’re sitting through another meeting that’s so dreary and dull it’s got you doubting your chosen professional when suddenly—BING!—an alert sounds on your phone: Someone mentioned you in a tweet.
Quickly, you glance at your Twitter app. It’s a retweet. You click through to see who this mystery admirer is when—oh, yeah, there it is, the sweet rush of dopamine that floods your brain. Ahhhh. It’s better than a double dose of caffeine and nicotine.
Everything will be OK, for the next few minutes or so.
