Wetherspoons is giving up social media so this will always be their greatest moment

JD Wetherspoon has announced it is closing down its Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts for all its 900 pubs and head office with immediate effect.

The pub chain said it was ‘going against conventional wisdom that these platforms are a vital component of a successful business’ and said it was ‘becoming increasingly obvious that people spend too much time on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook’.

And not enough time in the pub, they forgot to add.

So it looks like this will always be their greatest moment on Twitter.
