Aaron Rodgers

The big question right now is just how much damage Elon Musk is doing to Twitter and whether or not the social media platform will last that much longer. There are a lot of unknowns surrounding the site at the moment but one person who probably won’t miss it if it goes away is Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Twitter is a platform that gives a voice to the masses and allows them to share that voice directly with people in spheres of influence and power. That certainly has had some consequences on all sides. While it’s been a positive for people to have the ability to speak back to those in power to may or may not want to hear pushback, it’s also been negative for harassment, instigating violence, and worse.

As far as Rodgers goes, he doesn’t spend much, if any, time on Twitter. So as far as he’s concerned, it’ll be a good thing if Twitter goes away.

“I’ll probably be about as active as I’ve been on Twitter,” Rodgers told reporters last week when asked if his social media activity might change with the recent news surrounding the platform. “I enjoy Instagram a little bit more. At this point. I look forward to the day I have no social media, which may be coming sooner than later. But at this point, I’m not gonna make any drastic social media changes.”

If you want updates on Rodgers’ spiritual journey and alternative drug discovery, you’ll have to stick to Instagram to find those.
