Damon Lindelof quits Twitter: Did 'Lost' haters finally get to him?
Maybe he got sick of people whining about how "Lost" ended. Damon Lindelof, who co-created the show, deleted his Twitter account, after sending one final tweet Monday (October 15).
Lindelof, who was one of the first big name TV and movie producers to also become a Twitter personality had hundreds of thousand of fans who followed him, but even they couldn't drown out the negativity from those displeased with how "Lost" ended.
With the recent airing of the "Breaking Bad" finale, Damon became the target of tweets again, with users pointing out how they believed the Vince Gilligan's show ended the right way, as compared to "Lost." In fact, Lindelof penned an essay following the "Breaking Bad" finale, discussing how the hate people have toward the end of "Lost" has impacted him.
As a parting shot from the site, Lindelof sent one final tweet, writing, "After much thought and deliberation, I've decided t," leaving fans hanging. Not long after, his profile was deleted. Not a bad way to turn the lights off on the way out, but it pales in comparison to his most famous interaction. Lindelof sent a series of vulgar tweets in 2011, directed at "Game of Thrones" author George R.R. Martin, who said he felt cheated by the ending of "Lost" in an interview:
"In related news, my therapist just hit the jackpot ... George? You got yourself a feud, motherf***er ... Winter IS coming, b**** ... I don't take issue with his opinion, I take issue with the fact that he coined 'Pulling a LOST' as empirically 'f***ing up the ending' ... I've just been informed George is working on his feud response. I'll have it in FIVE YEARS! ... Two final thoughts, George. A. They weren't dead the whole time. B. 1997 called. It wants its web design back ... I stand by the ending of the show and defend it accordingly. Until I am worthy of the New Yorker, this is the platform I've got."
Please come back, Damon.
