Singer Elton John quits Twitter, blames misinformation policy


British singer Elton John has announced that he will no longer be using Twitter.

The singer blamed the platform’s “change in policy” around misinformation without elaborating.

John said, “All my life, I’ve tried to use music to bring people together. Yet it saddens me to see how misinformation is now being used to divide our world.

“I’ve decided to no longer use Twitter, given their recent change in policy, which will allow misinformation to flourish unchecked.”

Reacting to this, Twitter’s new owner, Elon Musk, said he hopes the singer will come back.

Musk wrote, “I love your music. Hope you come back. Is there any misinformation in particular that you’re concerned about?”
