Now I’m not going to get into the politics of the incident. Everyone seems to have an opinion, and I don’t think adding one more opinion makes any difference one way or the other. But I will say the response to the incident (on Twitter in particular) has been reprehensible.
Twitter has turned ugly, and the doxing of teenagers and wishing evil things to happen to them is not a place I want to be. So I had to ask myself: Would I tolerate this talk and behavior in the real world? Of course the answer is no, so it was time to say good-bye to Twitter.
