Time to abandon Twitter.

It has been quite astonishing to see how quickly Elon Musk has destroyed Twitter. I can't continue to provide Twitter with legitimacy by remaining as a user.

The chaos has been extensively covered elsewhere. For me, his behaviour towards employees, his seemingly growing fascist politics, and general erratic behaviour was deplorable enough. But banning journalists, and prohibition on linking to external social platforms, while crowing about free speech; that is beyond what I'm willing to tolerate. Abusing customer app notifications to increase engagement was just the icing on the cake.

So, goodbye Twitter. For all the drama, it was a great channel for being exposed to interesting tech, software, maker and radio information. No more.
