It takes thirty days to delete a twitter account. Once an account is deleted, the twitter handle then becomes available for whomever. So, guess what. I still have a twitter. But, now I know why so many people just leave their accounts there, and possibly on other sites? The facebook app couldn’t even be deleted from my phone, it’s built-in, could only disable it. But I did delete my account. I have to maintain a presence on Goodreads in order to have any control over my own author profile. Think about these things, think about all the ways this technology has us in its grip and how quickly what all would fall apart without it. My twitter remains there grudgingly. My opinion of it hasn’t changed.
