Log Off Protest - Phase Three
Starting February 1st at 12 am EST and extending to February 8 at 12 am EST, Phase Three consists of logging off Tumblr for an entire week and sending daily tweets to those who oversee Tumblr.
Phase Three’s main goal is to drop Verizon’s stock and to make Tumblr aware we are not standing by as they censor users and enforce a shoddy Flagging system. By tweeting each day, we gain exposure on our cause and put pressure on Tumblr to change.
The official F.A.Q will be released in a week and will answer the most prevalent questions. We will also release a list of complaints with the F.A.Q. If you have suggestions or questions, please DM us here or on Twitter. Thank you!
To everyone stating that they cannot log off of Tumblr for a week due to “not knowing what else to do” - there is plenty you can do.
It’s not healthy to be online for more than 15 hours a week. So by logging off Tumblr for a week, you can reduce this time online and do other healthier activities. Find a new hobby, maybe visit some places, work on schoolwork, play a new video game, and so on. The things you can do other than log onto Tumblr (a singular website) is endless.
There is more to the world and life than Tumblr. And if you state that you are sick of how Tumblr’s staff treats the website, then protest. Log off for a week. Sometimes sacrifices are necessary, and logging off a website for a week is a small one.
I will be off Tumblr from February 1-8 in participation of this event. I will still be over on AO3, and possibly take some more time to build up my Pillowfort a bit more.
