Will the New York Times quit Twitter before the end of 2024?

Inspired by this Nate Silver blog post https://www.natesilver.net/p/will-the-new-york-times-ever-quit

Will the New York Times stop using Twitter/X before the end of 2024? This resolves YES if there is a two week period during which the nytimes Twitter account does not make any posts, including replies to other posts. It can also resolve YES if the account is banned for at least two weeks. It resolves NO if at the end of 2024 the account is still active.

Resolves N/A in the edge case that Twitter no longer exists. Dumb Elon Musk stunts like renaming it to X are taken to be whatever is most in the spirit of the market. (So, renaming it to Y would not make this resolve N/A).
