Why would a tech writer need two monitors, let alone three, which
sounds like an ergonomic nightmare?

I can only look in one place at a time and I can context-switch with
keyboard shortcuts and my KVM switch as fast as I could look at a
different screen. Large displays with 16:9 aspect ratios provide such
huge desktops that I can treat them like two displays anyway.
