The same san be said of most other social systems.

I jump on AI once a day and start a conversation with me until it is clear it is not a human. It usually does not take more than a few minutes. Maybe I am a bad promoter . Maybe I am too critical . Maybe it just isn't that good.

Multitasking is the mythic capability of people to perform more than one task at a time.
