The new boss of Twitter cringes. Elon Musk is now at the helm of this social network, and that does not please everyone. This weekend, the model Gigi Hadid acted on her scale to prove her dissatisfaction, as indicated by our colleagues from People.
Twitter is a world apart. It is from there that many trends start, such as that of Listenbourg, an imaginary country that has been talked about for a long time lately… We join or not. Still, it is difficult to miss the little blue bird. However, Twitter can also be a bad place to live. The social network is indeed fertile ground for cyberbullying. The young actress Millie Bobby Brown, for example, confided with emotion in the relentlessness of which she was the victim.
Since last week, this small world is experiencing a mini-revolution with the sudden arrival of Elon Musk. The rich businessman has indeed offered the social network for the sum of 44 billion dollars. Since then, the controversy has swelled. Last Friday, the CEO of Tesla indeed laid off about half of Twitter’s 7,500 employees. He would also consider making the certification of an account payable, and even imposing a monthly subscription on users…
“This is not a place I want to be a part of”
Among the employees dismissed, would find the human rights team on the social network. Since then, the UN has been urging Elon Musk to respect these fundamental rights on the platform, as indicated by our colleagues from Point. A strange atmosphere, therefore, and which is not to the taste of millions of users. Among them, Gigi Hadid, who simply deactivated her Twitter account over the weekend. A decision that she then explained in an Instagram story.
“For a long time, but especially with its new management, [Twitter] becomes more and more a cesspool of hate & bigotryand it’s not a place I want to be a part of“, said the model. Comments reported by People. “Sorry to the fans, who I’ve enjoyed connecting with for a decade via Twitter, But I can’t say it’s a safe place for anyonenor a social platform that will do more good than harm.” A decision that undoubtedly disappointed his fans, but they can be reassured: Khai’s mother remains very present with her 76 million Instagram subscribers.
