A huge number of users made Twitter one of the most popular social media platforms people love to use to be connected 24/7 with their family and friends, supporting their favourite celebrities and the politicians all over the world (“6 in 10 users took a break from Twitter in past year in US: Pew survey,” May 18, Gulf Today website).

According to the report, six in 10 Americans who used Twitter in the past 12 months say they have taken a break from the platform for a period of several weeks or more during that span, a new study by Pew Research Center in the US has revealed.

While a majority who used Twitter in the past year report taking a break from the platform, a quarter of them say they are not likely to use it a year from now, according to the Pew survey conducted about five months after billionaire Elon Musk acquired the platform for $44 billion.

There is a huge outcry worldwide after Elon Musk, one of the richest persons of the world, who took over Twitter in the near past, made people uncomfortable with his new ideas and policies that’s why people are heartbroken and taking breaks from Twitter. But the social media platform, Twitter, remains on the top of the list of the social media networks.

Elon Musk has to listen to the users’ cries and hope he will take the measures to make users interact with Twitter.
