Twitter User Quits Leaves 35,000 Followers

NYT, Jonathan Weisman

Facebook users can make up names, but they at least have to sound legit. Twitter, not so much. Yes, Twitter’s free-for-all has advantages: parody accounts, anonymity for the persecuted and such. But that only means Twitter assumes more responsibility for policing its accounts.

I have been encouraged to return to Twitter, and told that I should continue to fight, that my exit was cowardly, that I let the haters win. And I might. I miss the quick rush of a scan through my time line.

Man if this was me, I don’t know I could leave Twitter. I need to know whats going on around me.
