Apologies if this has come up - I'm finding the search interface that I
found not very trustworthy, TBH.

On Twitter right now, a lot of use for "doomscrolling". For example,
accompanying the posting of a video of teddy bears riding a roller coaster:
"I'm making this the last thing I see on Twitter tonight. Stopping my
doomscrolling and ending on a good note."

Also, a Wired piece, not about the word but the phenomenon/activity:
"Doomscrolling Is Slowly Eroding Your Mental Health"
