We’ve Suspended Arts Admin Jobs’ Twitter Account. Here Are The Reasons.

Considering the decision by Twitter’s new CEO to reduce the company’s product, engineering, legal, and trust and safety departments to levels that can no longer effectively prevent rampant abuse, we have decided to set Arts Admin Jobs’ account to private and we have removed all Twitter share links.

These actions, combined with the CEO using his personal account to spread misinformation, are enough to confirm a new business plan that relies on monetizing content policies that no longer align with the site’s mission.

Over the years, Twitter has served as a remarkably useful platform during conferences and conventions and to help arts and culture organizations build connections with their community.

All of this makes recent developments that much more disappointing, and we look forward to a time when Twitter will once again be a communications channel we use.
