“断” means to “discontinue,” and “更” is short for “更新,” which means to “refresh one’s social media account status or online novels.” Therefore, this term coined by Chinese netizens means to “stop refreshing one’s social media account status or online novels, often temporarily.” Similarly, another term called “停更” means to “stop refreshing them for good.”
