Patton Oswalt Woke Up Today and Realized He's the Last Person on Myspace

Patton Oswalt has apparently been drifting about the dustbins of MySpace alone and listless, living like Wil Smith in I Am Legend who thought he was all by himself, but was actually surrounded by wave upon wave of beastly mutants.  Why didn't anyone tell Patton the Internet party has moved?  The downbeat spamwhores of MySpace let out a collective mirthless groan today when Patton announced his plans to slowly disengage from the site:

So, Im joining Twitter this Saturday.

And, eventually, whatever replaces it.

I was on Friendster. It collapsed. I jumped on MySpace, and now it's pretty much an abandoned shopping mall. I still get about 30 Friend Requests and 15 messages in my Inbox every day, but they're all mailing list bullshit for bands I'll never listen to, or porno-bots promoting some young Eurasian hottie. Even the comments are clearly all bot-generated. An abandoned mall still had trash, heating and cleaning services drop by, I guess.

We'll see you on the other side, Patton!
