Instapundit: I deleted my Twitter account. It’s a breeding ground for thoughtlessness and contempt.

Twitter is poison to American political discourse. Can’t we find a more worthy pastime?

I deactivated my Twitter account about a week ago. I was partly acting on impulse, because the social media site had just, for no obvious reason, “permanently banned” someone I follow, something that seems to be happening more and more. But I was also acting on my growing belief that Twitter is, well, horrible.
