This graphic poking fun at people who never delete their emails is going viral

The image sparked a massive thread over email inboxes on Twitter — some people argue that having so many unread messages simply means you get a ton of spam. Others, however, think you need to use a better email client if your inbox is that full.

Business Insider’s Alyson Shontell used to be in the class of people who let their inbox overflow with thousands of emails. Now, she’s managed to change her habits and maintain inbox zero for months.
