Every so often, a Twitter account comes along that changes the game. On a website littered with soulless, moronic "parody" accounts that imagine what Will Ferrell, Chris Rock, and Ted from the movie "Ted" would say if they were they were given a comedic lobotomy and the interests of a tween, @Bill_Nye_Tho was a beacon of education, laughter, and hope. With the exception of @__MICHAELJ0RDAN (who it appears @Bill_Nye_Tho was developing what would've surely been an amazing friendship, rife with potential for collaboration-- https://twitter.com/__MICHAELJ0RDAN/status/248156721116217348) nobody has harnessed the power and potential of a celebrity parody account with such a uniquely memorable approach. I am not sure what the motivation behind Twitter suspending @Bill_Nye_Tho was, but I do know that my timeline just isn't the same without 140-character golden nuggets such as, "SHOUTS OUT TO ALL THE BIRDS THAT ARE INCAPABLE OF FLIGHT BUT THEY STILL OUT THERE GRINDIN ANYWAY" or " SOMETIMES I REMEMBER THERE ARE MOUNTAINS IN THE OCEAN AND I GOT SO HYPE I JUST GO OUTSIDE N START RUNNIN AROUND MAN IDK." If the real Bill Nye is behind this suspension, I sincerely hope he reconsiders. At the time of suspension, @Bill_Nye_Tho was over 100,000 followers, many of whom, if not all, have been stricken with sadness and confusion over the loss of this account.

Thank you, and remember: "u may have breathed the same air a dinosaur breathed 1000s of years ago and if u dont think thats the tightest shit then get out of my face."
