The vibes on Twitter are off. They have been for a while, but now the bird app has turned into the meme of a girl watching a house burn down, thanks to Elon Musk’s continued efforts to command the platform — which have so far included charging users $8 to (in his own words) “trash” him, laying off about half of the company’s 7,500 employees, recommending that people vote Republican, suspending Kathy Griffin for “impersonating” him, and polling/trolling the internet. And now, the world’s biggest social-media activists — celebrities, of course — are protesting by deactivating their profiles and/or exiting the app. As of yet, it seems there’s only one person who can save the platform: Azealia Banks. Below is a running list of all the celebs who, in light of Musk’s takeover, have ditched Twitter … for now.
