(ANSA) - ROME, DECEMBER 09 - "All my life I have tried to use music to bring people together. Yet it saddens me to see how misinformation is now being used to divide our world. I have decided not to use Twitter anymore, given their recent change in the policy that will allow disinformation to flourish unchecked."

With this last twitter Elton John announces his decision to abandon Twitter.

The 75-year-old musician's comments come after Elon Musk, who bought the social media outlet for $44bn, said he was granting a "general amnesty" for suspended accounts, which experts say could bring various "hate" super-spreaders back to the social media suspended in the past.


   Stephen King has had several back-and-forth tweets with Musk.


   "Twenty bucks a month to keep my blue check? Fanc…, they should be paying me. If that gets instituted, I'm gone like Enron," the writer tweeted Oct. 31.

Muskha retorted: "We have to pay the bills somehow! Twitter can't rely entirely on advertisers. How about $8?"

Shonda Rimes, creator of famous series from Grey's Anatomy to Bridgerton, also tweeted that she did not want to remain with an "absolutist of free expression", as Musk himself defined himself.

Negative comments also from Téa Leoni, Toni Braxton and Sara Bareilles.
