Q:You got rid of your Twitter?
Louis CK:Yeah.
Q:You finally had it?
Louis:It didn't make me feel good. It made me feel bad, instead. So I stopped doing it.
Q:That's a very simple way to look at it.
Louis:I just thought: This thing doesn't make me feel good. Every time I say something on here, I wish I hadn't said it. And then I'll write a couple things to try to fix it? And then I'll feel worse. It was the worst things I ever said, heard and seen by the most people. It's the worst possible scenario.
Q:But the people never got to you, right?
Louis:The what? You mean things people write back to you?
Q:Yeah yeah.
Louis:I don't give a fuck about that. Reading it depressed me, and writing it depressed me. I hate it. It's everybody's worst side. I don't think the speed helps dialogue. I think it's why everything is so fucked up and polarized. People are going too fast, they're trying to react quickly. You know, like blogs write a whole think piece... "Here's why this person's wrong." And then you can even tell that they, probably a week later, went, "Ugh, I dunno, I shoulda given that a little more thought."
Q:Given it a couple extra days or whatever.
Louis:I hate it. I hate the smarminess of little tweets. "Just. Came. Back. From. Meh. Meh. Meh. And. Here's. My. Joke. About. It." There's no quality to it. To me the point of Twitter was just to announce that I'm doing something. And then people would go, "All you do is promote." Yeah, that's what the fuck it is. It's like watching a commercial for like a Ford Explorer and going, "Why don't you do something else besides tell me how good a Explorer is?" And the Explorer's like, "I'm a fucking car. I'm just trying to sell myself."
