Is Twitter Shutting Down In 2017 – Rumors Of Social Media Site’s Demise Send Internet In To Frenzy
Is Twitter shutting down in 2017? Everybody take a deep breath! This week Twitter had a worldwide meltdown, rumors were flying that the popular social media network would be shutting down in 2017. Apparently, Twitter was supposedly shutting down because of social media bullying. Despite the fact that the rumor is completely unfounded, and most likely not even true, tweets like #SaveTwitter were trending worldwide.
It’s really not clear how the rumor got started. However, an ominous tweet from the official Twitter account had conspiracy theorists certain that the end was near. The Twitter account tweeted a picture of a plate of pancakes, with the caption, “Hope Everyone Likes Pancakes.” Ironically the first letters of each word spells out “HELP.” And, that was reason enough for everyone to go into a frenzy.

The tech world is a flighty business. Apps and websites come and go on a regular basis. So, some day Twitter will probably be obsolete, just like MySpace, but that day is probably not anywhere close. If Twitter were to shut down, it would most likely have nothing to go with cyber bullying, and would have a lot to do with financial reasons. Or maybe even something to do with all of those hundreds of thousands of fake accounts spamming the Twitter universe and making it nearly impossible to enjoy the site like we used to.
It’s no secret that Twitter stocks plummeted in 2015 and reached an all-time low. Plus, the social media competition is fierce these days. On the bright side, the paranoia that has swept in over a possible Twitter shut-down is actually helping make the social media website a bit more relevant these days. And, although the idea of a Twitter-Free world is pretty scary, it did make for some pretty hilarious tweets.
