Jeremy Duns has left a message for why he is leaving Twitter (see below) – the author has decided to knuckle down and write some more books. I first encountered Jeremy on social media when writing about Mo Ansar on this blog. When Jeremy became involved, he took it to a whole new level
. For detective work becoming a spy, his investigative standards were the ones to imitate when it came to social media. His critics called him a bully; ironic as the very people he took down were more often than not bullies themselves in trying to stop the very thing Duns would expose.
His decision to leave twitter followed an examination of antisemitism on Twitter, one which you can read more about on David Paxton’s blog here. Paxton named “Duns’ Law” as:
Someone who uses the word ‘Zionist’ or ‘Zionists’ on social media to criticize others will also have posted antisemitic material.
Seeing plagiarists challenged about their integrity and charlatans exposed for the frauds they are, all made reading his timeline compulsive viewing. Reading one of his tweets, you just had to go to his timeline to read the full story.
As he swims another lap round an island in Scandinavia, before returning to his secret writers lair, I wish him all the best.
My thanks to @moomin_kew for sharing Duns’ statement and John Matthews for letting me know in first place.
David Paxton has just told me that he did not originate Duns’ Law but is unsure who actually did. Since telling me this person has been credited.
