It is with great sadness I have quit my twitter account which I first set up in 2010. I was so enthusiastic that this could be a wonderful tool for building community and communication. Sadly that is becoming less and less true as these social media platforms take no responsibility for the dreadful slurring of people, bullying, trolling and the such. These are not my values and I refuse to participate in a culture / community that does not penalise bad, unethical and just plain mean commentary in the public arena.
This organisation treats their employees poorly, allows bullying, intimidation and hijacking of accounts. They are acting irresponsibly with other people's information and instead of treating it as a social contract they allow their algorithms etc to manipulate others through marketing tactics (nothing wrong with that in essence but in application VERY tricky when shared values are not previously established).
My single voice will not be missed! If you want to stay tuned then do sign up for my newsletter and blog updates.
