Did William. Shatner. Just quit. Twitter? Sadly, yes. The actor’s Twitter account is no more.


In three final tweets, Shatner bid farewell to Twitter.


Full Twitchy coverage of William Shatner

  • Pat

    My conspiracy theory — WH calls, “Bill, we need you to tweet about the ACA for us.” Bill, “I don’t have a Twitter account, sorry.” [Quickly deletes his account.]

  • nc ✓s & balances

    You rarely see it anymore, but that was “going out in style.”

  • James Hansen

    so now we follow Chris Pine on twitter?

    • Chip

      Patrick Stewart, Kate Mulgrew, then Chris Pine. There is a line of succession you know!

      • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        What about Avery Brooks, chump– you bein’ racist or somethin’?

        • Chip

          He didn’t Captain the Enterprise….
          p.s. I’m black

          • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Excuse me for thinking you were talking about starring in ST franchise shows. But you still gotta back the brutha, yo. They be callin’ you a Dr Ben Carson sellout if you don’t.

          • CatHerder ✓fire! ✓fire!

            Okay, then what about Scott Bakula?

          • Chip

            Yeh.. but, in the grand scheme of the cosmos, chronologically speaking, he was already crowned before Shatner…..as was Jeffrey Hunter….. but, you did get me….

      • James McEnanly

        How about Scott Bakula, who played the captain of the first Starship Enterprise, or Fred Haise, who was the first commander of the space shuttle Enterprise

        • Chip

          See below. Discussed. Capitulated.

  • Falcon D. Stormvoice

    Most illogical.

  • CitizenEgg

    I think there are a whole lot of people that should leave Twitter, but the great ones that choose to leave will be missed. Hope you’re having fun Bill; you’ve earned it.

  • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    “Get a LIFE! Have any of you even KISSED a girl?”

    • Chip

      Does your mom count? jk

  • Maxx

    I would like him to return to Twitter as…

    …Denny Crane.

    That would be a “hoot.”

    Health related, maybe? As in too much other stuff to deal with at the moment.

  • Joshua Embrey

    Once again, enlightened, intelligent people focus on the things that really matter.

    In an alternate universe, a bearded William Shatner is Tweeting his heart out!

  • AmericanMom

    Shatner is 82 years old. It’s time for him to catch up on afternoon snoozes. He’s been an iconic and beloved celebrity.

    • Thale Taxurfeet

      Hopefully he will still make the occasional equestrian event.

      When you age, if you slow down too much, that lack of activity seems to be an invitation, if not a summons, to the Reaper.

  • CoastalMaineBird

    He’s going to devote more time to his singing career?

    Or maybe do a sequel to the Gonzo Ballet.

  • eeyore0274

    I get this! Not the account not found others are getting. I’m so confused.

    • grais

      I get his active Twitter account.

      Heee’s baaaaaaack….

      • eeyore0274

        I’ve got him back now as well. :) Phew!!!

    If we put his Twitter account on Genesis will it come back?

    God Bless William Shatner. Live Long & Prosper Shalom aleichem!

  • LegalizeShemp

    He must have boarded a Malaysian Airlines flight.

  • Rob Stevely

    I still see his account

  • Ken Alan Draper

    KHAN: “I shall leave you as you left me, buried in the center of a dead twitter account. Buried alive.”


  • http://www.GONINERS.com/ Kristine ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    He’s back.

  • LegalizeShemp

    Yes, who doesn’t get soaked in booze and bid farewell, only to return when the hangover fades.

  • http://www.black-and-right.com/ Ice Cold Troll

    Dang it! First it won’t do it at all, then it does it twice! Sorry, boss.

  • yourmamatoo

    Beam him up Scottie.
    He’s decided to warp speed back to reality.

  • Oak Tree Lady

    You scared me! Fortunately, he changed his mind and is back.

  • Dennis the Dreamer

    I guess he found out the Romulans are monitoring his tweets.

  • Steve Carter

    he’s just jealous of David Bowie. He’ll be back

  • Benjamin Dover

    Although some question the benefits of inheritance, no argument can be made that the citizens of a free country are worse off because of it.

  • Adam Johnson

    He’s back already. Whew. I CAN’T do politics all the time. Gotta have Shat.
