So Long Twitter


Hi All,

I have never been a big fan of Twitter but with Elon Musk taking it over I can simply no longer support the platform so I have deleted my accounts there.  Musk's sharp right turn in politics, using his platform to make political statements, and furthering misinformation and outright lies is very upsetting.  The reckless way he is reducing the staff who oversee Twitter content and deal with issues I fully expect the platform to implode into a stinky cesspool in no time at all.  

This is not to say I am a fan of Mark Zuckerberg or any of the CEOS of the various social media that I frequent, I'm not. But if they start actively breaking their own platforms the way that Musk appears to be doing, I will once again vote with my feet.
