Deleted my Twitter account. Made it to 8,234 tweets, 401 following, 2,056 followers, and 209 lists (for what that’s worth) over three years. I’ve deleted my Facebook account as well. Open systems need more of my attention, and it’s time to vote with my feet.

Interestingly, the language for deleting your Twitter account has changed to “deactivating.” When you deactivate your account, your data isn’t deleted, and your email address and username are tied up, but it’s impossible to restore.
