All in all, the good news is that Twitter will not shut down 2017 as rumoured.
“We’re not closing Twitter in 2017, we’re just having a year off. Like Glastonbury. See you in 2018.
Twitter is the site where people can say almost anything about anyone with seemingly few consequences. Perhaps this is what has caused it to become the target of a ridiculous rumour that went viral thanks to its own platform.
