Ever since Elon Musk bought Twitter in October, many users of the social media platform have discussed taking their musings elsewhere — and some have actually done it.
Some object to Musk’s spreading of falsehoods, the rise in hate speech after he took over, his layoff of half of Twitter’s staff and his reinstatement of former President Donald Trump’s account. Some figure that the site will go down entirely at some point due to many of the company’s engineers leaving the company. And some just say the site’s best days are behind it.
Either way, Twitter has had real “Closing Time” vibes over the last two weeks, with many longtime users taking to heart Semisonic’s counsel: You don’t have to go home, but you can’t stay here.
