Lost Signals

An archive of abandoned and forgotten twitter accounts.

Some of these “Lost Signals” are from users who tweeted once or twice, and then apparently decided the service wasn’t for them. Others are users who were tweeting regularly, until something pulled them away with little or no explanation. Occasionally we see a narrative unfold, a clue to their disappearance; more often than not, these clues leave us slightly unsettled, perhaps even concerned for the account’s owner.

What made them leave? Where are they now? All we have left of these Lost Signals are the impressions they left behind.
