Earlier this month, you might remember that Damon Lindelof wrote a piece about Breaking Bad‘s final episode for the Hollywood Reporter that was less a piece about Breaking Bad‘s final episode and more a piece about how he was retiring from defending Lost‘s final episode, specifically on Twitter. It was a very reasonable thing to decide to do! Relax, my man. Enjoy your life. It looks like he has taken his promise a step further and quit Twitter altogether. Also very reasonable! From the LA Times:
Damon Lindelof to Twitter: I’m outta here.
The former “Lost” executive producer, who became one of the wittiest TV industry people on Twitter, abruptly exited the microblogging platform sometime this week.
“After much thought and deliberation, I’ve decided t-,” Lindelof wrote in his last tweet on Monday, according to Variety. His @damonlindelof account no longer exists on the service.
Showtracker asked Lindelof for comment, but he declined via email.
Haha, “I’m outta here.” This is good — WE SHOULD ALL BE SO LUCKY AS TO QUIT TWITTER — and obviously very important. I heard that there was maybe something going on with the government but I blocked my ears and shut my eyes real tight and slowly crawled away to find a safe spot to hide, because no one is going to convince me that there is ANYTHING I should be thinking about other than how Damon Lindelof is no longer on Twitter. R.I.P. @damonlindelof. But we can’t say goodbye — not just yet. Not without a fitting tribute.
