Alec Baldwin Quits Twitter After Airline Ejection

Alec Baldwin fans will no longer be able to read about his airline ejections, Starbucks snafus, or Words With Friends challenges in 140 characters or less. That's right -- the outspoken star has broken up with Twitter.

The night after venting about his removal from an American Airlines flight, Baldwin announced that he was pulling the plug on his Twitter account, which is now deactivated.

"Let's play a game called Mass Unfollowing. I want to crash this acct and start again. But, tonight at 10pm, NY time, unfollow me," he wrote Tuesday evening before deleting his stream.

Earlier in the day, the 30 Rock star had twittered about the American Airlines fiasco, starting with: "Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving."

A rep for Baldwin told People that the 50-year-old actor has indeed quit his Twitter account -- but just temporarily: "It's just on hold while he focuses on 30 Rock."

The famously short-tempered actor is far from the first star to pull back from the social media site. Now the question is whether he'll return, like Chris Brown, Jesse James and Lily Allen, who all temporarily swore off the site but eventually popped up again.
