I’ve suspended Adaptistration’s Twitter account. Here are the reasons.

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, I decided to set Adaptistration’s account to private.

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 the site’s mission.

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 I look forward to a time when Twitter will once again be a responsible communications channel.
