NITV suspended its official Twitter account telling its 58,000 followers, “We’ve had enough of the racism and hate we see and experience every day on this platform.”

The latest NITV account tweeted sparingly in March with posts attracting 5 or fewer replies.
But the decision to stop tweeting stems from the departure of ABC’s Stan Grant D+R as a result of online racial abuse.
NITV talent also holds accounts including Karla Grant, John Paul Janke, Natalie Ahmat, Rachael Knowles, Lowanna Grant, Breanna Holden, Kerri Ritchie, plus executives including Tanya Denning Orman, Rhanna Collins and more.
@SBSNews will continue to share First Nations stories and NITV will continue on Instagram and Facebook.
