The Platform is Killing Itself

 

Probably the biggest reason to dump Twitter Stock now is the platform itself.  There has been much talk of how Jack Dorsey, the CEO since 2015 and the Twitter team have been policing opinions. The recent suspension of  conservative actor James Woods for the most pathetic of reasons (later reinstated when Twitter realized what a foolish mistake they made) There are no shortage of stories of innocent people getting banned or suspended for daring to have an opinion different to that of Silicon Valley. This author got banned for daring to challenge racism. Automatic ban whilst the racists are free to peddle their hate. In fact, Jack Dorsey has allowed the social media platform to become a cess-pit of hate and illiberal thinking.

Never mind the fact that the platform is difficult for advertisers when compared to say Instagram, we are now in a situation where brands do not want to be involved in the toxicity  of Twitter. Jack has created a monster, now that monster has turned on its scientist.

 

In short, Get out of twitter stock like people are getting out of the platform. According to Statista, In the last reported quarter, the number of monthly active U.S. Twitter users amounted to 68 million, a slight decrease from 69 million in the previous period. People are tired of the authoritarian BS, tired of the illiberal ruling and tired of a platform that rewards abuse. SELL TWITTER STOCK NOW
