A CBS News affiliate in California is pausing all interactions on Twitter after Elon Musk’s takeover due to an “abundance of caution.”

Does the policy extend to all CBS News platforms and affiliates? Some CBS News affiliates were still tweeting after the report in some cities. For example, CBS 58 in Milwaukee tweeted throughout the morning on November 19, 2022.

Heavy.com has reached out to Twitter’s communication executives to ask whether the policy applies to only the California affiliate or to all affiliates and the main CBS News Twitter account, which lasted tweeted on November 18, 2022.

“In light of the uncertainty around Twitter and out of an abundance of caution, CBS News is pausing its activity on the social media site as it continues to monitor the platform,” Jonathan Vigliotti, CBS News national correspondent, said in a news report.

The report ran on the “CBS Evening News” on Friday, November 18, 2022.

You can watch his comments in the above video. Vigliotti’s last tweet, also on November 18, 2022, was a retweet of a CBS Mornings tweet that read, “MASS TWITTER EXODUS: Elon Musk’s ‘hardcore’ ultimatum has led to mass departures, forcing the company’s HQ to temporarily shut down.”

He is a CBS News correspondent who is based on Los Angeles, California, according to CBS News.

The move comes as some Hollywood celebrities have also left Twitter due to Musk.
