More Last Tweets: What’s the Last Thing the World Would Ever Read of You?

03/07/2011 By Shawn Burns

Back in August I went through my Twitcleaner report and discovered dozens of people who were no longer actively Tweeting. Since I had to click through to their profiles in order to unfollow them, I was able to read the last tweets they ever wrote. Sometimes the last tweet provided a small glimpse into the reason they were no longer using Twitter; sometimes it was just fun or spooky or tragic to read reasons into those last 140 character strings.

It has been a while since I have run a Twitcleaner report, but I did another one this morning. This time around there were more names I recognized among those who haven’t tweeted in a while, and it made me sad to know they had gone inactive. But just as before, there were some funny, spooky, tragic, and strange #LastTweets to go out on.

I’m going to go with “No.”
