NBC News‘ Capitol Hill correspondent Kasie Hunt has quit Facebook because “I simply don’t trust them any more,” according to a tweet she posted.

  • Kasie Hunt appeared to be calling out Facebook over reports that the company gave third parties access to personal information.
  • Facebook has defended its actions in a statement.
  • Hunt noted she is keeping her Instagram account open — for now — despite the fact it’s owned and becoming increasingly integrated with Facebook.
  • She is also maintaining her Twitter account, even though it, like many other tech companies, has been at the center of controversy over content and privacy.
