Should Fashion Quit Twitter? | BoF

The reviews are in: the fashion industry is not a fan of Elon Musk’s twitter.

Gigi Hadid quit Twitter on Nov. 7, less than two weeks after the Tesla founder took control of the company. In a parting shot, the model called the service a “cesspool of hate and bigotry”. Balenciaga was next, deleting its account, which had around 950,000 followers, on Nov. 14, without further comment. Two days later, Macy’s announced it would also pull back from advertising on Twitter, just over a week before its annual Thanksgiving Day parade.

In under a month, Musk has laid off half of Twitter’s staff (and fired others via tweet) and upended the platform’s verification system by allowing users to pay $8 a month for the coveted blue check mark (and then halting the feature after it led to a proliferation of parody accounts spreading misinformation).

Here we take a look at everything you need to get started, from picking the best chains for men, and how you can fit them effortlessly into your already assembled wardrobe.

The Times to Increase Luxury Coverage with Dedicated Online Vertical

British broadsheet newspaper The Times is set to launch a new digital luxury vertical Nov. 7. The new venture will be an online extension of Luxx, the paper’s luxury print magazine supplement published five times a year.

Curated by Luxx editor-in-chief Kate Reardon, the new digital luxury channel will appear alongside the paper’s other online main verticals including Business, Travel and Sport. Unlike the majority of the Times’ online content, which is reserved for paying subscribers, the channel will not be covered by the publication’s paywall.

The launch is the result of mounting interest in luxury coverage from both readers and advertisers, Reardon told BoF. While the publication declined to comment on Luxx’s print advertising revenues, The Times’ commercial director Caroline Tredget described the supplement as a “fantastic commercial success.”

“It’s a reflection…of how well the business part of this is doing for us and also how well the readers
