Still kicking

Last time I took an extended break from the Internet, the only clue I left as to my whereabouts was a cryptic reference to the disappearance of Ambrose Bierce that could reasonably have been, and indeed was, interpreted as a suicide note. So, just to be clear: I have only killed my Twitter account. I’ll be back, maybe in a week, maybe in a month, but for the time being it’s too much of a distraction as I deal with trying to move my life from Nicaragua to Los Angeles. And while I’ve met a lot of beautiful souls on the Great Social Media Satan, all it takes is one disagreeable person in my “mentions” tab to sour me on life and so — since I don’t have any sage to burn — I think signing off is the best way to get rid of all that negative energy.

  1. Wait a minute, not so fast buster. You were the source of a lot of "negative energy" on Twitter. It can only make "positive energy" to admit that.

  2. How long are you going to keep doing this? Find another writer to troll.

    I'll miss you in my twitter feed, but at least you're still blogging. Never mind the bollocks/ trolls – keep up the good work. And good luck with the move.

    Didn't realize you were returning for good. Welcome back to the reservation.

  5. So you claim that your Twit about the San Diego Union-Tribune was at least "neutral energy"?

  6. have a good move (if there is such a thing) and enjoy LA. Sorry I never got to meet you while you were here in Nicaragua.

  7. Mark,I suggest Matt Yglesias.Mike,I'll be around for the next three weeks or so if you find yourself in the Rivas area.

    Good luck with the move, and good riddance to Twitter. If you write on other sites, though, a link to it on the blog would be appreciated.
