Bishop leaves Twitter, calling the platform an ‘occasion of sin’

The Washington Post | July 2018

Rhode Island's Catholic bishop, once a fiery conservative voice on Twitter, kicked the habit.

From the story:

Thomas Tobin, the bishop of Providence, R.I., joined the social media platform in February and accumulated about 6,100 followers. He shared his thoughts on a vast array of subjects, including abortion, the New England Patriots, Pride Month and his pet dog.
Then, this week, he announced that he was leaving Twitter, writing in a final tweet that it had become a “distraction” to him as well as an “obstacle” to his spiritual life and an “occasion of sin for me and others.”
