13 Ways To Mourn Joss Whedon Leaving Twitter

We're gonna get through this, friends.

Now that "Avengers: Age of Ultron" is raking in money at the box office, it seems like everybody all over the Internet -- everybody except director Joss Whedon, who deactivated his Twitter account yesterday.

This isn't the first time his Twitter account has gone gentle into that good night -- as he told Entertainment Weekly in 2013, he started up his account on the social network to promote his movie "Much Ado About Nothing" and briefly quit soon after the film was released. "The moment I joined, oh my God, what a responsibility, this is enormous work—very fun, but it really started to take up a huge amount of my head space," he said. '

Of course, just because Whedon's left us before doesn't mean there aren't plenty of people who are bummed to see him leave. If you're one of those people, take heart -- there are plenty of coping mechanisms for you to try out.

  1. Lending support
  2. Understanding

    Yes, take all the naps, Joss!

  3. Quoting

    These days, making a relevant reference to a famous person's body of work is an integral part of the grieving process.

  4. Humble-bragging

    Now NO one will get a fave from Joss Whedon, which makes your tweet extra special.

  5. Blame-Shifting

    To be fair, he has a point. Twitter is just the worst sometimes.

  6. Gloating

    Fun fact: Twitter is like "Highlander." At the end of the day, there can ONLY BE ONE.

  7. Jealousy

    Really when you think about it, Joss is free. That's a nice comfort.

  8. Reminiscing
  9. Pure Sadness

    You can tell how intense their feelings are from all the emojis.

  10. Hashtags

    The best way to mourn a loss is with a really well-coined trending topic.

  11. Jokes!

    Hanging out with your best friend? Getting back together with an ex? Just had a heartfelt conversation with your mom? Better keep 'em indoors.

  12. Super Aware Acceptance

    Let's not mince words -- this is not the first time Joss Whedon has ever made us feel sad.

  13. Regular Acceptance

    It's okay, he's off to a better place. You know, the real world.
