CBS news network announces it's back on Twitter only a few days after it announced pausing activity for "security reasons".
The CBS news network announced earlier last week "pausing its activity" on Twitter, only to go back on that decision later.
CBS News correspondent Jonathan Vigliotti had announced the decision during CBS Evening News last Friday. "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."
A spokesperson for the broadcaster told Axios that "We [CBS] are hopeful that we will resume activity very soon."

Since Elon Musk acquired Twitter, several international brands and companies have been cautious about engaging with the platform or have put it to a temporary halt.
The parties include The North Face, Pfizer and General Mills among others.
The Tesla founder and CEO wants to develop the business model of the platform and aims to increase ad revenue, which most of the app's income comes from, which is why it is vital for companies to trust the platform and its policies.
