I have cancelled my twitter account
Jan 3, 2018 - I have decided to cancel my Twitter account. I am appalled by the hypocrisy shown by Twitter toward the abusive and threatening messages fouling social media, specifically those drafted by the president but certainly not limited to him.
If I threaten to punch my neighbor on Twitter I can be blocked. If I threaten to obliterate a nation with nuclear weapons - and have the ability to do so - Twitter says that is acceptable behavior. This is insane.
I write historical fiction to bring messages from the past into our collective consciousness, not to glorify war but to try and prevent slipping over the edge into that black void. It is about time social media puts social responsibility over social exposure.
I welcome your feedback.
