For nearly 2 years, I had a comedic Twitter account under the username @Donglord69. It was fun to post quirky stream-of-consciousness jokes and add my voice to progressive political dialogues.
I met a lot of wonderful and immensely supportive people, and felt like part of a bigger community that included writers, musicians, comedians, cartoonists and more. Twitter was responsible for events that changed my life - all because people liked my stupid jokes! - and I’m immensely grateful.
With nearly 10,000 followers, things got a bit overwhelming and distracting. I’ve decided to take a step back and unplug from social media to focus on my personal goals. I know it sounds like some ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ schlock, but I believe it’s necessary.
Thank you to everyone who appreciated what I had to say, even if it was written under a wacky name. Weird Twitter, you rule.

Bye for now, guys. It’s been real.
P.S. I’ll leave you guys with this - one time, I asked my followers for stories about hanging out with the “Van Kid” in high school. The responses were funny as hell, and can be found on Storify. Enjoy!
P.P.S. Just noticed that in my absence, people have started using the name “Donglord69” on Instagram, Steam, FanFiction.net, and more. It’s popping up everywhere! I guess it had a ring to it?
I don’t really mind since I’ve retired it, but just a heads-up that there’s tons of stuff out there linked to the name that I didn’t write or create.
