Musk Loses Matt Taibbi To Substack

Matt Taibbi, the gonzo journalist picked by Elon Musk to report the “Twitter Files,” said he was leaving Twitter after being caught in the middle of its feud with Substack, Josh Dickey reported for The Wrap.

The recent introduction of Substack Notes – a short-form blogging platform – apparently ruffled feathers at Twitter, which now considers Substack a “hostile rival,” Taibbi wrote in an email to his subscribers, according to Mediaite.


Twitter has similarly blocked would-be rivals like Mastodon from sharing live links on the platform.



But Substack is the home of hundreds of influential writers who need platforms like Twitter and Facebook to share it beyond their subscription bases. Taibbi said in a Substack chat that Twitter is now “unusable” for him, and that Musk did not respond to his questions about the move, Mashable’s Matt Binder reported.
