Goodbye Twitter

After trying to counter disinformation on Twitter for years, I am finally leaving.

Twitter has become a platform consumed by tribal tit-for-tats and my own account has been limited severely by Twitter itself, such that only people who follow me can even see my tweets on the platform.

I admit, I have lost and Twitter has won.

It is a platform that is unfriendly towards facts.

It is a platform designed around rewarding people for telling others what they want to hear. It is a platform that encourages grifters and discourages those trying to inform you about the grifting.

I cannot fight a war on a platform that is intentionally censoring my material. 

This has been a long time coming.

I will take up the fight here and on other outlets.

Thanks to all of my friends and supporters.
