We’ll never let go, @JackDeGioia, we promise…

The end has come for @JackDeGioia, our humdrum president’s hilarious Twitter doppleganger.  Things began to look grim when the Chronicle of Higher Education reported that the University of Texas at Austin’s president’s pseudo-Twitter was shut down last Thursday. According to a tweet from the man behind @JackDeGioia, Georgetown Heckler Editor Jack Stuef, Twitter sent him an email notifying him of the account removal yesterday.

Luckily, Vox was able to get some screenshots of the account so at least the final tweets can be enjoyed in perpetuity:
