Alec Baldwin Will "Never" Tweet Again
E! Online ^ | Today 3:19 PM PDT | by Natalie Finn

In the wake of his latest failed attempt at anger management, Alec Baldwin has decided to take a cue from the late, great James Gandolfini.

Asked by Vanity Fair last night whether he'll ever tweet again, Baldwin replied, "Never. No."

"I went to Jimmy Gandolfini's funeral, and when I was there I realized Jimmy Gandolfini didn't have Twitter," the 30 Rock star said at the afterparty following a photography exhibit he curated at Gallery 151 in New York City.

"Jimmy Gandolfini was so beloved as a person, and he was so admired as an actor, and he didn't give a f--k about social media." PHOTOS: Alec Baldwin's 7 most rage-filled feuds

Not to mention, Gandolfini's funeral was the event from which the whole scandal sprang that led to Baldwin quitting Twitter last week.

The consensus now is that Britain's Daily Mail errantly reported that Hilaria Baldwin tweeted an upbeat message about anniversary gifts (the couple just marked their first year of marriage) during the service at Manhattan's Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine.

But when the story first broke, Baldwin rushed to Hilaria's defense in a most verbally agressive fashion, slamming Mail reporter George Stark for getting the story wrong, calling him a "toxic little queen" and other slurs that later prompted the actor to rethink, delete and, ultimately, pull the plug altogether on his latest Twitter account, ABFoundation.

I am proud to say: I never watched 30 Rock ONCE. Not once and I have no idea what it was about and have no interest in finding out.

Another promise... Like the one about leaving the country if Bush were to be reelected in 2004.

The nation thanks you, Alwc.

In fact, the entire country would be better off without the toxic exhibitionism of Facebook, Twitter, and the other enablers of this total waste of time.

You know, until this guy went on a late night show and, as I recall it, called for the killing of a Judiciary Committee Chairman and his wife and family, thereby making his bones with every leftist in Hollywood, his career was almost dead.

Since that night, he has been stuck in series after series, commercial after commercial and kept in the limelight despite his septic personality.

That’s all fine and swell. But real progress would be if he were to promise to never drink alcohol again.

“I used to have facebook”
__________________________________________

I have two Facebook accounts, but never go to them anymore.
My wife has two or three FB accounts, including one for our baby boy.
If she is on the computer, she is on Facebook.
Our 2 yr old boy uses one of three laptops and his own I-pad.
I am amazed at how someone that young can operate all of these gadgets, playing so many games on U-tube or I-pad..

Those who write in Twitter's halls
scroll their tweets in little scrawls.
Those who read these little twits,
all must be inane halfwits.

I don’t really give a shit if he does or not. As far as I am concerned, that is for his worshipers to cry about.
