Tweeting goodbye: Celebrities who quit social media – CNET

Wil Wheaton

Star Trek and Big Bang Theory actor Wil Wheaton deactivated his Twitter account on Aug. 17 for #DeactiDay — a movement to encourage Twitter users to deactivate their accounts either temporarily or permanently, in protest of Twitter’s lack of action again racism and abusive information, specifically from Alex Jones.  

Wheaton’s last tweet on Aug. 15: “Twitter is broken. You deserve better than an app that tolerates and welcomes the spreading of abuse and misinformation. Being part of this is not doing us any good. Personally, politically, socially. For a day, a week, forever: your call. It’s just a good time to go.”
