When I set up Ellipsis over five years ago, it started life on Twitter. It was my go-to place to publish content and socialise digitally. Since then I’ve made thousands of digital friends and several real-life friends through Twitter. Ellipsis wouldn’t be where it is now without Twitter.
It has never been perfect but it was a great space to be in, especially the literary community, but unfortunately, billionaire owners like to run things diffrently and the re-instating of toxic accounts, banning journalists, etc. is not a place I want to be.
So, for now, it’s time to log out. I’m not deactivating the Ellipsis account, it’s on hold until things settle down. And hopefully they will. I’ll still be publishing three new flashes each week but, for the foreseeable future, I won’t be logging in to Twitter; there’ll be no updates, posts or interactions there. If you need to get in touch, you can drop me an email or interact via Ellipsis’ other social networks. All new content and posts will be linked there: Mastadon, Facebook or Instagram.
See you on the other side.
