Matt Drudge, of the Drudge Report, deleted all of his tweets except one this week, leaving visitors to his personal account (as opposed to the Drudge Siren™ Twitter account for the Report) with a single mystical message about today's "manic digital age." As The Blaze noticed, Drudge also changed his Twitter background to two parrots who appear to be grooming each other.
The single tweet that remains on his account fits with Drudge's history of being dramatic on Twitter. A history that is now, of course, erased. Aside from that tweet, Drudge hasn't commented on why he emptied his archives. We should note, however, that he has cleaned up his Twitter archive on at least one previous occasion. So maybe it was just time for a bit of spring cleaning.
Fortunately, thanks to the magic of bloggers everywhere and Google's caches, many of Drudge's best tweets are still available. Below are some of the best ones we could find. Note: The Wire highly recommends that you press "play" on the video below while scrolling through the rest of this post:
We already miss you. Please start tweeting again soon.
