Oh, one last thing: As I said, my life is better without Twitter in it, so I'm posting this as an announcement, only. If you have questions or comments, I'm itswilwheaton at Facebook and Instagram, and of course I am wil at wil wheaton dot net. Thanks. Be kind!
This is so much longer than I intended. If you're still reading, on behalf of every person I’ve been at every stage of my life, I want to say thank you, from all of us, for listening.
You can pre-order the print book here: a.pgtb.me/Vqd3Ms Oh I'm supposed to tell you that if you pre-order any version of the book, you'll get to listen to an early chapter from the audiobook. Just enter your receipt here: m.lndg.page/tBkxb9
I need you to know that this book gets raw, vulnerable, and intense in a few places. If any of that sounds like it could be difficult for you, I want you to know ahead of time, so you can be prepared. You can learn more about Still Just A Geek here: wilwheaton.net/2021/10/still-…
Finally, a content warning. I talk a lot about my traumatic childhood. I talk about experiencing abuse, neglect, and exploitation. A lot of that was incredibly hard for me to read for the audiobook, much more challenging than it was to write.
You’re going to hear about a son who just wanted to be seen and heard, from the father who he grew up to be; a father who will do his best to give that kid, that teenager, that struggling twenty-something the voice he never had.
I suspect it will help if you imagine that we are sitting in a room together, and I am just telling you my story. I’m reading to you from the book I wrote 20 years ago, occasionally looking up to reflect on it.
Industry professionals tell me this level of annotation and reflection is kind of a new thing for memoirs, and I wanted to offer a suggestion that may help ease you into the whole experience.
The annotations are almost-50 me talking about the experiences of almost-30 me, with the benefit of 20 years in between us. The second half is essays and speeches I’ve written in the last handful of years. You will hopefully see how I grew and changed as a person, and writer.
If you're not, like, "Be ... sure ... to drink your ... Ovaltine?", here's what I want you to know. This will take a few tweets. The first half of this book is my 2004 memoir, Just A Geek. I’ve heavily annotated and reflected on who I was and what I wrote in the early aughts.
It feels ... gross, tbh, but I just want everyone who has ever expressed an interest in me or my work to know that I have a new memoir coming out on April 12 called Still Just A Geek. This seemed like the best way to let nearly 3M of you know that. a.pgtb.me/Vqd3Ms
But at some point, nearly 3 million of you made a choice to follow me here, and I wanted you all to know that I have a new book coming out that may be relevant to your interests. Yeah, that's right, I quit Twitter out of principle, and now I'm using my account for promotion.
Hey nerds! As many of you know, I walked away from Twitter a long time ago, on account of all the bullying and unchecked fascism. I kept the account, but I haven't used it. It turns out my life and especially my mental health, are better without Twitter.
I’ve been a daily user of @Twitter for the last 11 years - long before I started working at Twitter. I won’t be a “monthly active user” during the rest of Q3. I’m deleting the @Twitter app from all my devices and signing out of all browsers. @jack, thread 👇

Bookmark this for anytime someone says 'gun laws don't work' or 'I'd love to stop this but there's no way to know how.' Yes they do, and yes there is. We have data. We have evidence. Share it. scientificamerican.com/article/4-laws…

I've signed and packed and processed all the orders for these. If you haven't gotten an email with a tracking number, you will soon. Domestic orders should arrive by the end of the week, I'm not sure how long International will take. it is so weird to write a tweet for 30 people

"A former senior U.S. official with whom I spoke was briefed by ministers from three of the four countries that attended the dinner....Trump struck them as uninformed about their issues and dangerously unpredictable... 'The word they all used was: "This guy is insane.”'" twitter.com/peterbakernyt/…

Good night, nerds.
Black Mirror S04E01 was fantastic. Great work, everyone!
I think that's enough Twitter for today. I'm going to go watch Black Mirror with Anne, if the dogs will make room for me on the couch. Be kind to each other, nerds. We are all we have in this world.

Context (pls don’t give him views): nymag.com/selectall/2018… Hoping @YouTube takes this beyond seriously. On sites I’ve moderated, this would merit a permaban. Feeling physically ill, but I remember for every Logan Paul there are countless YTers doing good things on the platform. twitter.com/mort3mer/statu…

Don't let @neiltyson make you feel bad because you're excited to look at tonight's beautiful full moon. It's okay to look up into the sky, put the science, probability, and math aside for a moment, and just enjoy sharing something wonderful with your fellow humans.
Reading tweets about football helps me realize how normals feel when I'm talking, and I go off on a tangent about character creation in RPGs, and how GURPS is a flawed system that still works if GMs enforce the consequences of min/maxing without a consistent character design phil
The demand for legal weed here in Los Angeles is ... kinda high.
Clickbaiters gonna clickbait.
Happy New Year, nerds! Here's to 2018 being ... just being better. I think we earned it by surviving 2017.
Get the fuck outta here, 2017.

Holy shit those sold out faster than I could refresh my browser. I did not expect that. If I can find more in storage, I'll put them on sale again in the mysterious future. If you were one of the 30 who bought one, I'll ship them out in 2 days.

Okay so I did not anticipate the level of interest, so ... yeah I'm going to go ahead and put these up for sale. It'll be fun!
I was going to recycle these, but I thought that maybe there are 30 of you who would want one, if I signed it? If I built a quick and dirty store page, would you be interested?
I just found about 30 of these old Teen Dream posters in my office.

.@Twitter, you need to learn what stochastic terrorism is. Because right now, you're verifying people who are not only harassing and libeling other users, but actually promoting subtle cues towards violence. Do you want that on your hands? twitter.com/chrissyteigen/…

(THREAD) BREAKING: The NYT has published a bombshell report on George Papadopoulos—the biggest Trump-Russia news since Flynn's plea. This thread dissects the new revelations—as well as some major implications for the Trump-Russia collusion narrative. I hope you'll read and share.

UGH fuckin' Gandhi and his nukes I swear to god.
I've been thinking about writing a guide to deal with procrastination. I'll get started on it after a few more turns in Civ V.
I, Werner Herzog, welcome you to my Rocking New Year's Eve. Silently ponder each bubble in your champagne, the dying shriek of a sacrificial yeast.
