Disappointing Twitter-news to start the week, Steven Moffat, a regular fixture on Tweets Of The Week (including today’s instalment) has left our beloved social network, presumably to write some brilliant episodes of Doctor Who , Sherlock or something equally less important than 140 character updates.
According to his wife/ Sherlock producer Sue Vertue Moffat deleted his account because:
Reading between the lines/jumping to conclusions it’s easy to assume that the endless negative feedback users in the public eye with as many followers as Moffat must receive on a daily basis finally became too much for the Who overlord, a theory backed up by the fact he allegedly asked how to limit the number of @ replies he saw moments before leaving Twitsville.
@ Glinner So Moffat has left Twitter, shortly after asking how to limit the @'s he saw. Another victory for snide, pathetic bullies with zero class
In other news, it’s traditional to celebrate birthdays with an icing-laden cake and enough fizzy pop to rot the teeth of an entire classroom full of younglings, but in a digital age such tangible treats are a relic. Instead we have the Google Doodle, an ever-changing illustration, animatic or game on the Google homepage themed around a major event to take place on that day in history. September 7 marked to 46th anniversary of Star Trek: The Original Series , so to celebrate Google created a glorious, fully animated logo dedicated to Starfleet’s finest, and thanks to Twitter we know just how much the stars of Star Trek past, present and future appreciated it:
@ WilliamShatner Has everyone seen the Google logo today? You must go there now. Happy Anniversary Star Trek! My VERY best! Bill
@ reneauberjonois Honoring the original Star Trek - check out the Google home page (search page) today, Friday. Great graphic - and interactive!

@ steven_moffat Out for dinner with my son, Louis. "Dad, what do you when you can't think of an idea? Is that what happened with The Beast Below?"
@ ManMadeMoon Jesus... Young Rutger would have made a hell of a Judge Dredd.
@ jamesmoran So who do I have to kill/shag/both to get hired on Joss' S.H.I.E.L.D. show??
@ THEBRYANHITCH I worked on Doctor Who and designed Eccleston and David Tennant's TARDIS and they were amazing. I do think Matt Smith might be best Dr ever
