But Stephen, these foul people are a minority! Indeed they are. But I would contend that just one turd in a reservoir is enough to persuade one not to drink from it. 99.9% of the water may be excrement free, but that doesn’t help. With Twitter, for me at least, the tipping point has been reached and the pollution of the service is now just too much.
That Twitter, the company, over so many years did not manage to implement efficient tools to fight harassment (and weigh positive behavior heavier than bad behavior) is not just an embarrassment and an affront to all abused users but might just be the biggest nail in Twitter’s coffin.
