I’ll admit it. I used to be lured in by clickbait articles. My curiosity just had to know the top 8 reasons why I should be drinking more coffee. Or less coffee. Or no coffee at all. Or why coffee is better for you than strychnine. (I’m exaggerating, of course, on that last one. At least I hope so.)
As I scan down my Twitter feed day after day, it’s becoming strikingly obvious that content listing the “top 10 ways to do this” or the “7 reasons you should do that” have become tired, annoying and even obtrusive.
