One click and Balenciaga is no longer part of Twitter

[vc_row njt-role=”people-in-the-roles” njt-role-user-roles=”administrator,editor,author,armember”][vc_column][vc_column_text]

After Elon Musk bought Twitter, many brands are leaving the platform. This is the case of Balenciaga, owned by Kering, which closed its account on Monday.

 

Following the purchase of Twitter by the South African-Canadian-American billionaire, the social network with the blue bird has undergone significant changes that strongly displease some users and brands. Balenciaga, whose artistic director Demna is one of the most politicized designers in the industry, becomes the first luxury player to disappear from the platform.

 

The Parisian label decided to leave the social network last Monday, closing its account to its million subscribers. She made the choice to no longer disseminate content, including excerpts from its fashion shows generally as disturbing as spectacular. The press service of the brand confirms its withdrawal, without further comment.

 

Before it, a number of companies have distanced themselves from this new policy very special that Elon Musk instituted. The car manufacturer General Motors or the household appliance company Dyson announced that they would no longer accept advertising space on Twitter, but that they will keep their profile.

 

Celebrities, some of whom are very active on the network, have decided to delete their profile, such as model Gigi Hadid or actresses Tea Leoni and Amber Heard.

 

The richest man in the world has already made major changes, such as the dismissal of half of the company’s employees or a paid subscription to acquire the certification. He has also announced his intention to make Twitter a space of free speech, open to all. His opponents fear that this will lead to abuse and open the door to conspiracy theorists and hateful messages. His latest idea? Make users pay to send messages to famous people.

 

Many see Elon Musk as a technological genius. But others do not hesitate to point the finger at him and take their leave of his famous Californian social network.
