‘The View’ Host Whoopi Goldberg Joins Celebrity Exodus From Twitter: ‘It’s So Messy’ (Video)

“I’m gonna get out, and if it settles down and I feel more comfortable, maybe I’ll come back,” Goldberg said

Whoopi Goldberg is joining the celebrity exodus from Twitter in the wake of Elon Musk’s takeover. The host of “The View” announced the news during Monday’s show.

“I’m gettin’ off,” she said. “I’m gettin’ off today, because I just feel like, you know, it’s so messy and I’m tired of now having had certain kinds of attitudes blocked, and now they’re back on. I just, I’m gonna get out, and if it settles down and I feel more comfortable, maybe I’ll come back. But, as of tonight, I’m done with Twitter.”

Though the rest of the table largely agreed that Twitter is a “hellscape,” none of Goldberg’s cohosts said they’d be leaving Twitter with her.

“You’ve got this Elon Musk turning it into something that it was never intended to be,” Sunny Hostin said. “He said it’s gonna be ‘the public square,’ well, I don’t wanna be part of that public square. But I also don’t want to miss the valuable information that can be put on there.”

Host Sara Haines agreed, saying that Musk’s plan to eliminate bots on the social media platform by charging for verification is “shortsighted,” and that, as a result, people will be able to “impersonate better” on the platform.

Host Alyssa Farah Griffin also readily agreed, noting that the only reason she got verified on Twitter was because she was being impersonated.

“Here’s the other I wanna know: Who owns your Twitter feed?” Goldberg added. “Who owns what you write on Twitter? You’re paying them $8, who owns it? See, there’s too many questions right now.”
