Actor Adam Baldwin Quits Twitter Over Platform's Alleged Silencing of Conservatives

Adam Baldwin has had enough of Twitter. After the social media platform’s continued censorship of conservatives, the actor decided he’s leaving and never coming back.

“Twitter is dead to me,” Baldwin told the Independent Journal Review. “I’m going to find greener pastures elsewhere and I’m not coming back.”

On Monday, Balwdin, who currently plays XO Mike Slattery in TNT’s “The Last Ship,” deleted his entire Twitter history, except for one:

@Jack is the CEO of Twitter and the Trust and Safety Council was created earlier this month as a “foundational part of our strategy to ensure that people feel safe expressing themselves on Twitter.”

“This group-think, Orwellian, so-called Safety Council is really killing the wild west of ideas that Twitter was,” Baldwin told IJR.

The recent banning of conservative Robert Stacy McCain that prompted Baldwin to call it quits.

“It’s really a shame that so-called ‘liberal thinkers’ and the so called ‘tolerant crowd’ is intolerant of varying viewpoints,” he said, reports IJR. “They’re so afraid to hear people disagree with them. Instead of ignoring it or providing their own arguments in return, they say “shut up!””

Sound familiar?

Twitter users have been seeing a sort of slow motion destruction. Sometimes subtle, sometimes not so much. Twitter as a business is not doing well and now there is a movement to block "promoted tweets", i.e., ads. This is so typical, Twitter is the social media equivalent of newspapers. So what! Let it die!

Twitter is 99% opinions and sales. Almost no facts or real analysis and it is doomed to fail when enough people get tired of being conned.

Twitter is well on its way to becoming just like DUh (Democratic Underground) where the question isn't if conservatives get banned, but how many comments* it takes.

"I can get banned from DUh in 5 posts." "I can get banned in 3." "Get that ban."

(* Note: Comments "earning" a ban are usually free of vulgarity, hatred, and threats, just like the bans by Twitter.)

This seems to be a good time to remind everyone that Andrew Klavan has been right on this subject for years.

I have never been involved with twitter. It seems pretty silly to be proud of making comments in 140 characters or less.
