My career is mostly built on my Twitter use. I was rather addicted to it for quite some time. Two weeks ago, I blocked it and removed the apps and honest to god Im happier. Even my friends have noticed a change in my mood. Its a great tool, please don't get me wrong. My career wouldn't be where it is without it, but make sure you develop socializing and networking skills outside of it.
Balance is definitely important. I've found myself a little addicted to it, feeling like I might miss out on something, but I'm doing pretty good for the most part. I make sure to schedule times for unplugging where I keep my phone put away.
