Now is the Twitter of our discontent. Jaden Smith, offspring of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, has deleted his account on the social media platform. Smith's tweets were known for their existential and philosophical nature. He questioned the world around him in elegant turns of phrase. He loved to capitalize every letter in a statement, thereby offering a subtextual commentary on the importance of signs and semiotics. We often imagined Ferdinand de Saussure smiling down from linguistic heaven, chuckling softly to himself as he read a Jaden Smith rumination.   Now, we're left with the harsh reality of Jaden Smith: Twitter quitter. This is what you see when you try to access his account, @officialjaden

We must go gently into the good night without the warmth and insight of Jaden Smith's Twitter truth bombs. His words will always live on in meaningful Internet posts, such as Complex's "20 Life Lessons We Learned From Jaden Smith's Twitter Feed," and our very own "Jaden Smith Or World-Famous Guru? Let's Play!"  We'll miss you on the tweets, Jaden. Or, should we say, Life Is Brief & Time A Construct But Words Are Powerful Swords Lingering Forever. That's the send-off we imagine he would want.
