Why Did One of Twitter’s Brightest Lights — at Least Among the TV Crowd — Bail Out?

Damon Lindelof, the former executive producer of "Lost," has left Twitter, even though he was considered one of the wittiest television people on the service, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker.

Lindelof declined to comment to the Times.

"It’s possible that the longtime TV veteran was smarting over some nasty digs that fans made on Twitter recently that compared the finale of ‘Lost’ unfavorably with that of AMC’s ‘Breaking Bad,’" the story notes.

For example, one Twitter writer wrote, "That’s how you end a series," directing the tweet to Lindelof and his producing partner, Carlton Cuse.

The story adds, "Until Lindelof breaks his silence, we’ll never know exactly why he left so suddenly. But if he was expecting his move to silence the haters, no such luck." One Twitter user wrote, "THAT’S how @DamonLindelof ends his run on Twitter? Gotta say, I’m underwhelmed and angry. I bet he didn’t have that planned from the start."
