Why I’m staying on Twitter

Elon Musk has reactivated the accounts of racists and antisemites including Donald Trump and Kanye West. Jelani Cobb: Musk’s “reinstatement of Donald Trump’s account made remaining completely untenable” Cobb argued that now that Twitter is a private company, anyone who tweets is essentially an employee. Van Jones: Twitter has always been a snake pit catering to the worst of human impulses. Jones: Most White Twitter migrants have flocked to places such as Mastodon to escape Musk. She says staying on Twitter to engage in battles with trolls isn’t “resistance,” but building community is.
