Most people active on Twitter enjoy its lightning-paced chatter and endlessly updating timelines. Then there's @MarcusLepage.
Going by his avatar, Marcus looks to have been a mere lad when he joined a fledgling Twitter in 2009 and told the world of his intent to slumber.Then, after this first tweet—nothing. Marcus' account, like so many others, lay fallow, unchanging, and apparently abandoned. Until today. Your math is correct: That's a seven-year gap between tweets Nos. 1 and 2. Marcus' feat of endurance shattered what may be considered the record for this kind of thing: a Rocky Horror Picture Show gag that took five years. But the question remains: Will Marcus ever tweet again, or just go back to sleep? Also, why is Donald Trump the only person he follows? Though perhaps it is not for us to comprehend the mysteries of Marcus. He is not one of us mere mortals. He is meant for greater things.
All hail Marcus.
