LADA Leaves Twitter After Facing “Vicious” Homophobic Attacks That Were Not Removed By Platform

The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office (LADA) has announced that it will be leaving Twitter due to a barrage of "vicious" homophobic attacks that were not removed by the social media platform, even after they were reported. The comments ranged from homophobic and transphobic slurs to sexually explicit and graphic images, and the LADA said that they had reported the offensive comments to Twitter, but that the platform had failed to take any action. The LADA said that it was committed to continuing to work with the community to create a safe and inclusive environment, and that it would continue to do so, even without the use of Twitter.
