Jonathan Vigliotti, reporting for CBS News, alerted their viewers that the outfit would be entering a trial separation from Twitter. It may be that CBS News still loves Twitter – they’re just not ‘in love’ with Twitter.

Is this a Ross and Rachel situation? We’re picturing Jim Axelrod dealing with an irate Norah O’Donnell after posting to Mastodon: ‘We were on a break!’

It’s not clear yet. Here’s Vigliotti’s very nebulous and generally meaningless statement:

‘In light of the uncertainty around Twitter, and out of an abundance of caution, CBS News is pausing its activity on the social media site, as it continues to monitor the platform.’

We’re not sure what ‘uncertainty around Twitter’ means, or why an ‘abundance of caution’ is needed for simply sharing their news reports publicly – something they do through every other platform available to them regularly.

Is this a garbage excuse, cloaking the real reason CBS News is taking this action? We think so.

It’s more likely tweets like this are the real source of their frustration with Twitter:

In the past few days, left-leaning forces across Twitter have been trying to speak the end of the platform into existence to salve their butthurt over Musk taking control of the platform. In their minds, if they can’t control Twitter and who says what, then nobody should. This editor believes CBS News is just joining team ‘take your ball and go home’.

Is it going to work? We don’t think so.

Look, Twitter has a user base of 200 million people. We go to Twitter for our news, entertainment, friendships, sports, and gossip. It’s an everyday ritual for most users: ‘Let me see what’s going on in the world …’

The platform is not simply going to disappear because a tiny cabal of whiners, relative to the entire user base, has a raging case of avian envy.

CBS News is playing the fool, and Twitter users know it.

See! Elon Musk has already improved the quality of news content the public is receiving. LOL.

If only there were hundreds of other AP echo chambers spewing Democrat talking points on Twitter …

Don’t let the tweety door hit you where the good Lord split you, Felicia.

Twitter users are clearly broken up by the development.

We hate to tell them, but for millions of people CBS News is either that place that occasionally shows up in their Twitter feed or was what Grandpa used to watch at 6 o’clock.

They’ll be back. They always come back.


There’s a whole lot of house cleaning going on at Twitter these days, and we’re here for it!

The bubonic plague … now there was a good reason for an abundance of caution.

HAHA! It’s not going well for you, CBS News.

This is the proper response.

This is going to be so much fun. We at Twitchy will, of course, pass along every virtual-signaling hissy fit so we can all laugh together!

The hilarious replies and retweets are more than we can share here. Treat yourself to more.

Just make sure you’re not drinking anything … out of an abundance of caution.
