Quote of the Day: Stephen Fry on what Twitter has become

Trying to make sense of why Stephen Fry left Twitter? Here's what happened...

“Let us grieve at what twitter has become. A stalking ground for the
sanctimoniously self-righteous who love to second-guess, to leap to
conclusions and be offended – worse, to be offended on behalf of
others they do not even know."

~ Stephen Fry, quoted in the article 'Bag lady' speaks: Costume designer Jenny Beavan
says she is not upset by her friend Stephen Fry's Bafta comments



  • “Proper grown-up humans have no idea why a celebrity has deleted his Twitter account.”
    Proper grown-ups blissfully ignorant of latest Twitter row – DAILY MASH
  • “It’s no big deal – as it shouldn’t be. But yes, for anyone interested I have indeed deactivated my twitter account. I’ve ‘left’ twitter before, of course: many people have time off from it whether they are in the public eye or not. Think of it as not much more than leaving a room. I like to believe I haven’t slammed the door, much less stalked off in a huff throwing my toys out of the pram as I go or however one should phrase it. It’s quite simple really: the room had started to smell. Really quite bad.
