We’ve Suspended Our Company Twitter Accounts. Here Are The Reasons.

For Immediate Release 10/31/2022

Chicago, IL: Considering the decision by Twitter’s new CEO to reduce the company’s product, engineering, legal, and trust and safety departments to levels that can no longer effectively prevent rampant abuse, we have decided to cease all advertisements and set company accounts to private. We have also removed Twitter from all social share links. We have also removed Twitter from all online marketing strategies and budgets.

These actions, combined with the CEO using his personal account to spread misinformation, are enough to confirm a new business plan that relies on monetizing content policies that no longer align with this company’s mission and culture.

Over the years, Twitter has served as a remarkably useful platform during conferences and conventions and to help arts and culture organizations build connections with their community.

All of this makes recent developments that much more disappointing, and we look forward to a time when Twitter will once again be a communications channel we use.
