As reported recently in the Washington Post, it is almost certain that Elon Musk will purchase Twitter and take it private. The Post obtained documents indicating that Musk will cut 75 percent of Twitter’s workforce, putting users at greater risk of hacks, and spreading porn. His unfettered approach to free speech will likely reinstate Donald Trump’s account and other extremists.
My blog pushes posts out to Twitter and other social media platforms. In my opinion, the continued association with Twitter would reflect poorly on my blog if some of its readers using Twitter were exposed to these risks.
Effective immediately, my site will no longer post to Twitter. Those readers might consider signing up for notifications at https://StephenFieldingImages.org.

Yeah, I have an online subscription to the Washington Post, so I’m on this. But I’ve never used Twitter – never even been slightly tempted – so I don’t have to say good-bye…
Not that I have a whole lot of twitter followers, but I will be doing the same.
