Louis CK has told us before how much hates Twitter, but now he's taking his stance on technology a step further. In an appearance on TBS's Conan on Thursday, the comic told Conan O'Brien that he's quit the internet, "for now."

He explained that he did it for his daughter, who "dies inside" every time he interrupts his time with her to look at his phone. "It's a horrible abandonment," he joked.

Louis says he had his daughter set a passcode that locks him off the internet on his phone. With his newfound freedom, he's found himself approaching strangers to ask questions he'd normally type into Google and reading books again, like "Pride & Prejudice."

Louis, who has two children, then shared a note from his daughter thanking him for making the change. "I think people should know that it has an impact on your kids if you stop looking at the stupid internet," he said.
