Effective immediately, WDAV is suspending all activity on Twitter.
You are likely aware that Twitter recently applied a series of misleading labels to multiple Twitter accounts run by NPR (National Public Radio), falsely implying that the public media organization is not editorially independent from the federal government.
Twitter ignored repeated requests from NPR to correct this misrepresentation. In response, NPR has halted all activity on the platform indefinitely. Though Twitter has since removed these labels from NPR’s accounts, this action does not undo the harm caused.
As a public radio station and NPR affiliate, WDAV stands in solidarity with NPR and member stations across the country in their condemnation of this deliberate attack on independent journalism and free press.
While we acknowledge this action may disappoint users of this platform, Twitter is just one of many ways that fans of classical music can engage with the music, news, and content that WDAV produces. We’re still active on other social media platforms, including Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn.
WDAV also offers weekly newsletters filled with station happenings, regional arts coverage, trivia, and links to great classical reads. Check out WDAV’s blog Of Note to keep up with what’s going on locally, nationally, and globally in the world of classical music: blogs.wdav.org
The music and companionship WDAV provides is available wherever you are, 24/7, whether that’s on the radio at 89.9 FM, streaming at WDAV.org, or the WDAV mobile app for Apple and Android devices. For a complete listing of the many ways to listen to WDAV, click here.
