Packers’ Aaron Rodgers Wouldn’t Mind Twitter Going Extinct, Doesn’t Expect Social Media

Share

Mark Green Bay Packers star quarterback Aaron Rodgers is someone who is hoping that Twitter will disappear as many have predicted since Elon Musk took over and made drastic changes.

Rodgers has always been someone who speaks his mind no matter the subject, whether it’s saying the NFL should move to grass fields or even calling out his own teammates in the midst of a turbulent 2022 season thus far.

But when asked about his thoughts on Twitter, Rodgers was very direct with his response.

“I’ll probably be as active as I’ve been on Twitter,” Rodgers said via The Comeback, which is minimal use of the social media platform. “I’m enjoying Instagram a little more. At this point, I’m looking forward to the day when I don’t have social media, which may come sooner rather than later. But right now, I’m not going to make any drastic changes to social media.”

Many people, including verified reporters, have already tried to move their followers to a different platform. For example, ESPN’s national MLB reporter Jeff Passan has been breaking some news on Instagram.

But others, like the NFL’s Adam Schefter and Ian Rapoport, follow their followers on Twitter to break news and share their stories.

On his own Twitter, Rodgers is not one to respond to snarky or hateful comments like NBA star Kevin Durant among others is known. Instead, he keeps things very positive, promoting podcasts he’s on, sharing Packers content here and there and thanking people for having him at events.

His well-documented spiritual journey is on his Instagram page.

Since his inauguration, Musk has seen a slew of staff departures from Twitter, with many choosing to leave the company after the billionaire installed policies they considered harsh. The employees stated that Musk asked them to commit to an “extremely tough” work ethic for the good of the company. Those who left obtained compensation for three months.

Throughout this rotation, Musk has used his own Twitter account to mock those who question his process, including cheers for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DN.Y., and for journalists leaving for other platforms.

“Hope all Judgey Hall monitors stay on other platforms please I beg you,” he tweeted on Monday.

But none of this tug-of-war with Twitter and its users will upset the future Hall of Fame quarterback at the end of the day. Instead, it will focus on his next opponent, the Philadelphia Eagles, on the road next Sunday.
