“It’s been a little over a week since Elon Musk took over Twitter and this place is a mess,” she said. “I’m getting off today because I just feel like it’s so messy, and I’m tired of now having certain kinds of attitudes blocked now getting back on. So I’m gonna get out, and if it settles down enough and I feel more comfortable maybe I’ll come back. But as of tonight, I’m done with Twitter.”

Goldberg listed all the whiplash announcements Musk has made since completing his takeover of the social media platform — such as the new blue checkmark program going from $20 to $8, and staff firings and rehirings. She also cited Twitter suspending Kathy Griffin’s account for impersonating Musk.

“People keep saying it’s free speech, but all speech is not free speech,” Goldberg added. “Some speech is not OK free speech. So everybody has to agree on that, but if people keep saying ‘You hurt my free speech’ it’s going to be a problem. You know what? This is our problem. But it ain’t my problem today because I’m out.”

A few others who have recently claimed they’re exiting the platform include TV showrunner and prolific producer Shonda Rhimes, This Is Us executive producer Ken Olin, singers Toni Braxton and Sara Bareilles, and model Gigi Hadid.

“Not hanging around for whatever Elon has planned. Bye,” tweeted the Grey’s Anatomy creator and producer mogul last week, while This Is Us executive producer Olin declared, “I’m out of here.”

“Let’s keep the faith. Let’s protect our democracy. Let’s try to be kinder. Let’s try to save the planet. Let’s try to be more generous. Let’s look to find peace in the world,” he added
