Avenged Sevenfold frontman M. Shadows is bidding farewell to Twitter, citing his lack of interest in the platform's utility. In a parting message, he expressed said he is "neither bummed nor mad about this app in general... it just simply doesn't interest me at this point."

For the last few years, Shadows had embraced blockchain on the platform, and NFT's specifically, creating his own Deathbats Club NFTs. His avatar on the platform for this time was a CryptoPunk NFT.

Recently though, the singer changed his X/Twitter avatar to a digital black hole, or eclipse-type design, and changed his name on the platform to "Nobody." 

He left this message to his followers on the platform:

Twitter - I'm saying goodbye (kinda) 

I was gonna write out something to explain why I don't find this platform useful anymore but the reality is even that is a waste of time and who really cares?

In 2021 I was invited to do a "twitter space" about NFT's which resulted in me having to sign up for my first social media experience.  Reluctantly, I stayed on. Here, I created relationships with many people I never would have met.  So for that I'm grateful.

It was great for launching Deathbats Club and all of our other endeavors around Avenged Sevenfold.  I'm neither bummed nor mad about this app in general... it just simply doesn't interest me at this point.

I will continue to post about nerdy things that actually make me excited to get out of bed.  It will not get much reach because this is how the app works.  These things include the bleeding edge of technology, VR, blockchain, music communities, and an occasional song.

I'll be in and out of discord hangin w people there when I can.  Just know every day we are building new ways that are meaningful to connect.  This just isn't one of them. ⌛️
