CBS News pausing Twitter activity

Recommended Posts

CBS correspondent Jonathan Vigliotti reported on today’s edition of the Evening News that CBS News is pausing all activity on Twitter as Elon Musk’s handling of the website is under scrutiny. I assume this also applies to the O&Os as well, as (of this posting) most have not tweeted in 2-3 hours.

I noticed Jim Benemann said the same thing, and I'm sure there are probably others out there as well.

 

I am not an Elon fan at all nor do I think Twitter is headed in the right direction, but it seems a bit extreme to tell everyone company-wide to lay off on it, even temporarily. The site at least still works relatively the same as it did a month ago...

Similarly to the way advertisers have pulled out because of Elon’s verification strategy, I think it makes perfect sense for media outlets to step away until things are formalized and clear. It poses a significant reputational risks.
