Have you signed up for Mastodon yet? Post? Hive? It feels like it’s been years since Elon Musk acquired Twitter, and yet it’s been less than two months. And in that short span of time, hate speech has skyrocketed, use of the N-word increased by over 500% within twelve hours of Elon’s reign, advertisers fled, employees fled or were fired, and on and on and on. This week jarrett and Tre’vell will grapple with the question millions of people are asking themselves: Should I leave Twitter?

About the show
Sometimes the people, places, and things we love don’t love us back. We’re fans, but we also have some ANTI- feelings toward them. Every week on FANTI, journalists Tre’vell Anderson and jarrett hill bring their pop culture and political expertise to things we must stan and stand up against. FANTI is a place where nuance reigns supreme with energetic, complicated, and sometimes difficult conversations that bring deep knowledge and thoughtful perspective to the things we love and rage about, from the White House to the Real House(wives).
