Small Afrikaans owned South African Tech company abandons Facebook & Twitter in protest

(000228.79-E000157.73NRLOSUC20V)   

[A small company that I deal with sent out this message. The owner is a Boer, and I was delighted to see it. Here is how his email to all his customers starts. I like this. He is abandoning FB and Twitter without even waiting for them to delete his account. He is aborting all work through them. I know his tech business and he has no need to do this. I am convinced he is acting out of principles! So 14/88! Jan]

With the New Year comes some changes. USL has decided to discontinue our use of Facebook and Twitter in light of the censorship issues that many are facing worldwide by major tech giants.

XXX has initiated account deletion today on both social platforms.
