After I left Twitter, I decided to start paying for news.
So I subscribed to The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The Guardian. (And I’ve been subscribed to Talking Points Memo for about five years.)

I’ve left Twitter. I can no longer tolerate their arbitrary rules that favor the powerful and the fraudulent.
