Oh Noooooo!
There's a Reason I've Set My Twitter Account to Private
Summary: 
Aren't stalkers delightful? Don't you just want to pinch their rosy little cheeks and hug them REEEEAL hard until they stop breathing?

I don't intend to spend a lot of time talking about this on the show (which begins Friday at 6pm ET, 3pm PT on Talk1). I just wanted to mention why my Twitter account is set to private.

I have a peculiar fan club. It's a group of a dozen or so extreme right wing conservatives that wish I would die. (I will, but not on their timetable.) I won't go into the reasons for this, other than to say based on some of the things I've written over the years there is a pack of incredibly stupid people who have decided I'm a soap opera villain. No matter what I say, no matter what I do in real life, that must be processed through this filter of "soap opera villain."

(These are the sort of people who support Donald Trump, hate immigrants, hate muslims, hate liberals -- the kind of morons who don't have two dimes to rub together who consistently vote against their own self-interest because AMURICAH!)

When I decided to join forces with BBS Radio, I changed my twitter account to @deepbrain radio, and you are all certainly welcome to follow that account. But because these virulent trolls have discovered my attempt to evade their notice, I don't want these mouth-breathing morons to ruin YOUR Twitter experience with me.  If they were allowed to read my tweets, they would start to harass the people who tweet to me. They've done it in the past and I have no doubt they will do it again if I let them.

Not gonna let them.
