Ace said he’s quitting Twitter:
I’m a proud Twitter Quitter and my life has improved since I cut the progressive IV drip.
And he suggests you should too:
Blow Up Your FaceBook (And Twitter, I Assume) Account. Quit With Extreme Prejudice. …
Take control of your lives by ending your dependency on progressive institutions and time-wasting media indulgences.
Yeah! Do it, show us all how quitting Twitter is done! Lead us to the promise land, Ace!
…But Ace is sort of not quitting Twitter either:
My Easy Embargo Of Twitter
I am not going to post anything from that second article other than the title, because it is all nonsense and bullshit. Basically Ace cares so little about Twitter and Facebook, that he is keeping his accounts open and active to “protect” his brand*.
When I called Ace out on his Attention Whoring hypocrisy, he called me an ankle-biting bottom-feeder and then blocked me. Ace must have had a change of heart on blocking me, because he unblocked me shortly afterward.
I ask you, how is my starting a fight with one of the more influential conservatives on the internet going to get me more followers? Ace leaving or staying on Twitter serves me no purpose.
Ace thinks that I place stock in my followers. If I did, I’d buy followers. I don’t give two fucks if you follow me (but I am becoming increasingly picky about who I follow back) or not, I am making no one do anything.
If Twitter or Facebook shuts down, I’ll just go find something else to do. If I get bored with Twitter or Facebook, I will move on. If I am banned from Twitter or Facebook, I’ll live (it isn’t like I have been banned from a site before).
Again my griped with Ace is that rank, attention seeking “Do As I Say, Not As I Do” hypocrisy. I know Twitter and Facebook is corrupt is hell, but you don’t see me telling others to get off those sites and then stay on to “keep up” my brand. I’m not accusing people of being addicts if they don’t want to quit Twitter. I don’t throw casual temper tantrums like a five-year-old.
One Last Point: There is no half-pregnant or a little pregnant. You are either pregnant or you are not. And you are either quitting Twitter or Facebook or your not. Ace is trying to justify staying on Twitter and Facebook with his “Easy Embargo” nonsense, pure and simple.
Well, see ya’ later!
