The internet and cell phones have become a ubiquitous part of life. They're everywhere and most people have them. But it wasn't always that way. Twitter user @anaismitchell wanted to know what people miss about the time before cell phones took over everything, and social media delivered their memories of the before time.
People who had analog, pre-cellphone childhood or young adulthood, I’m tryna write an essay, what do you miss about those before times?— Anaïs Mitchell (@anaismitchell) January 1, 2022
1. Being Unreachable
2. Everything Was Tactile
3. Naturally Off The Grid
4. We Played Outside A Lot
5. Nobody Expected An Immediate Answer
6. Not Being So Fragmented And Distracted
