Stephen Fry exits Twitter via stage left

Postby Prey » Mon Feb 15, 2016 4:48 pm

Fry tweeted on Twitter concerning friend Jenny Beavans' appearance comparing her to that of a bag lady and was immediately set upon by the Twitter Twatters. To which he replied...

“Will all you sanctimonious fuckers fuck the fuck off Jenny Beavan is a friend and joshing is legitimate. Christ I want to leave the planet”.


After a few more replies he later deleted his Twitter account it seems.

Goodbye Fry. You'll be back I'm sure. Twitter can be a minefield at times but Matt Lucas weighed it up best...

Didn't you get the memo? No-one is allowed to do jokes anymore.

He's packed in Twitter more times than you've packed in this forum. :D

That must be some kind of record?

Poor guy though. People really are the worst.

At least he didn't flounce off to Belgium this time.

Twitterers get offended by everything.

If you take Twitter that seriously then maybe he is best off not on the thing.

welcome to the age of the instant reply from EVERYBODY

If Fry wants to make cheeky in-jokes with friends, do so, but then do not try to explain yourself to people.

A very easy lesson here - quit Twitter and never rejoin. Infact never ever join what is probably one of the most damaging public forum programs ever to grace the internet. Never had an account and never will either.

Does anyone here have an account and what has been their experience ?

As for Fry, he kind of needed humbling. Last year all he talked about was his husband....as if we care...because we don't. We get it - you're gay and you married. Big deal.

I use twitter a fair amount, mostly to connect with people of varying celebrity status who I like. Mostly authors and content creators really. I also pimp my own videos and work on there but I'm under no illusions that anyone cares about that :P
IMO :P :wink: :P :wink: :P :wink:

I have an account which I use very rarely but exclusively for ranting at Northern Rail.

It was through necessity originally. I was trying to get a refund for a £40 journey that should have taken two hours but ended up taking four hours due to Northern Rail being useless, but after a month of hearing nothing back about the refund form I'd sent and having no reply to any of the emails I'd sent, I took to Twitter. Got a terse reply within minutes and a refund in two days. It's sad that public humiliation is the only way to deal with some companies.

Twitter is very good for getting companies to respond to any complaints you have it seems. My brother posted a picture of a coffee and walnut cake that we got from Tesco once that was distinctly lacking in filling. Within 30 minutes or so Tesco had replied and offered us a £5 voucher.

Not really I just didn't get Twitter for donkeys and now it's all about talking about a youtube channel and nothing else just business it's getting easier to handle. Can't be faffed with multiple accounts on it though, email is enough of a faff.
