Deleted my Twitter account

This evening I deleted my Twitter account. I’m feeling surprisingly unsettled by doing it, to be honest.

The Twitter mobile interface showing that my account has been deactivated.

I can’t participate in a platform that gives a voice to people who incite violence. I said I would leave if Trump were re-instated, and that is what I am doing. I know Twitter has failed in the past in many ways, but this deliberate decision is the last straw.

I have downloaded the archive of my tweets, and I will process it and upload it to my web site as soon as possible.

You can find me at @andybalaam@mastodon.social.

If you’d like help finding your way onto Mastodon, feel free to ask me for help via Mastodon itself, or by email on andybalaam at artificialworlds.net
