Muppets Hate Quit Twitter

This is what we call the hate quit show!

With the new changes coming in the future of Twitter following Elon Musk’s $44 billion acquisition, some muppets are saying that they are leaving the social media platform for good. Elon Musk’s controversial Twitter purchase has led a number of muppets to abandon the platform, many expressing concerns about Elon Musk’s position against hate speech and disinformation. Quit following online chatter back in April, some stars promised to quit Twitter once Musk’s deal closed, citing concerns about what the billionaire would do at the helm of the company.

From the (failed) payment to verify Twitter accounts, the reinstatement of accounts operated by bigots, and hundreds of staff departures, Elon Musk’s radical changes to the platform led to a number of muppets saying goodbye to the platform. Muppets including Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy bowed out following the overthrow of Twitter by Elon Musk. The takeover was greeted with disapproval from some, who worried that Elon Musk’s move would weaken guardrails on what users can post, leaving Twitter open to more abusive content or disinformation.

Rowlf the Dog announced he is leaving Twitter to work for a talk show that he hosts.
