As you can see, we’re spending a lot less time on Twitter, and we figured it might make sense to share where to find our activity in future.
The short version
If you’re interested in following updates about ClimateAction.tech, please follow our page on LinkedIn, and our newsletter.
That’s the short version – read on for some more context.
The longer version
First of all, why are we pausing updates on Twitter?
Put simply Twitter is becoming less relevant in general, and less useful to us, and over the last few months there has been a trend in moderation giving disportionate space to discourses around climate denial and delay. This quote from Professor Katherine Kayhoe in December from Chief Scientist at Nature.org, IPCC author, and well known climate communicator is pretty telling:
Climate denial on Twitter was already a dumpster fire; now, it’s as if it had a litre of gas thrown on it
We only have so much time to spend engaging online with social media, so we’re consolidating on platforms we see meaningful, and constructive engagement.
