PBS Joins NPR In Backing Away From Twitter

  • The Public Broadcasting Service became the second news organization to quit Twitter this week after National Public Radio quit using the platform after Twitter CEO Elon Musk had the organization listed as “US state-affiliated media” and later as “Government-funded Media” — a designation later applied to PBS.
  • “PBS stopped tweeting from our account when we learned of the change and we have no plans to resume at this time,” PBS spokesman Jason Phelps told Bloomberg News.
  • “We are continuing to monitor the ever-changing situation closely.”
