To which Nine Inch Nails replied, “Embarrassment.” “I’m about to leave. We don’t need the arrogance of the billionaire class to feel like they can just come and solve everything.”
Reznor added that he had considered leaving Twitter long before Musk bought the company. “Even without him being involved, I find it has become a very toxic environment. For the sake of my mental health, I need self-control. I just don’t feel happy being there anymore.”
As it is, Reznor Twitter is not used muchBecause his tweets are few and far between. However, his account has 1.6 million followers, so it looks like he’s willing to forgo a major social platform to stand up for his principles.
