One seemingly simple update to the application caused a huge disruption across the technology industry.

I realised that I do not want to be a mother who is online all the time and never there for her daughter. I can't. I do not want her to remember me like I had a disorder in my right hand called iPhone. Nope. I want to listen to her without tweeting a picture of us, watching other people on Instagram or reading text messages on WhatsApp. I want to be present in her life and by her side.
