I joined Twitter in 2008. It allowed me to connect to the InfoSec community in a way I couldn't in person at the time. I had a lot of positive experiences, and it opened a few doors for me professionally. Today, after reading about more senior folks resigning and rumors that Musk is searching for ways to monetize user data in unethical ways, it's time to say good-bye.
I am now happily reliving the best experiences of early Twitter on the hachyderm.io Mastodon instance.
If you're considering leaving Twitter, there's a few things you might want to do to ensure your data isn't used in whatever the off-the-rails cry-baby billionaire dreams up next.
