That won't do it, RT.
By the way, I still don't get what's fun about Twitter. You can't really have a genuine conversation there, as far as I can see. Seems like it's only good for promotion and soundbites, neither of which interest me much. What am I missing?

It's interesting. I imagine Twitter is supposed to make you feel more connected to the world. It has the opposite effect on me -- it makes me feel that the world is just a vast, anonymous mess of people gibbering in sound bites without doing much in the way of thinking or actually communicating. Which it is, but who needs reminding?
I find it a bit depressing; I will give it a week or two, but likely will abandon my account.
Did you already abandon your account? Or did you block me before I'd even followed you?? You blocked me, didn't you? Didn't you?? I TOLD you that apartment fire was an ACCIDENT - I only meant to burn your I <3 Cray poster collection.

I already deactivated it. I gather it takes 30 days before it disappears.
This probably sounds stupid, but I genuinely found it depressing. I felt the way I do in a really loud, crowded party or bar that's supposed to be hip, but where I barely know anyone and have to fight my way to the bar. Everyone is yelling over each other, actual conversation isn't really possible, and the worst part is that everyone seems to be having an awesome time except me.
I usually look for the door then, too.
We can burn my I <3 Cray poster collection together, as a bonding ritual. If you like, we can throw cray on the pyre.
CassandraW, you just explained perfectly why my twitter account has set dormant for years. You explained it so well that I now understand why I did it.
