Big things are happening in the MCR fandom today. Solo Cinnamon Roll Gerard Way has announced that he's working on new music and, hence, is going on that age-old standby - the social media hiatus. Basically, Gerard announced he was quitting Twitter - sort of. It was all very vague and confusing. We were sad.
I have experimented for about a week or so and have come to a conclusion- I work better when I'm not thinking about using twitter— Gerard Way (@gerardway) January 10, 2016
Yay, new music! But wait, does this mean...
I don't know what this year will bring. I am trying new things, but they require a lot of work and full attention, not unlike making albums— Gerard Way (@gerardway) January 10, 2016
Fair enough G-Wizzle, you do you.
I have enjoyed the last few years on here. Met some cool people, learned a bunch. But I feel a little overloaded from it.— Gerard Way (@gerardway) January 10, 2016
Ok, let's not make rash decisions here!
Lots of love. Off to work!— Gerard Way (@gerardway) January 10, 2016
And with that, he was off. We were distraught.
Gerard has tweeted a few things since, but his account will now be dedicated mostly to news and updates, for the foreseeable future.
So to help you (and ourselves) through this difficult transition, we've made a roundup of his best Twitter moments to date. Let these keep you warm at night.
1. When he was all about acceptance.
Some ppl like sitting on balloons, some ppl like watching ppl sit on balloons.It's their thing,I don't judge even tho I'm scared of balloons— Gerard Way (@gerardway) December 24, 2015
2. When he cared about your mental health so much, he made you a calming colouring page.
Bandit and I made this Hobbit coloring page for the Holidays- if you get stuck today just give this halfling a spin pic.twitter.com/KpEl0Pr37b— Gerard Way (@gerardway) December 30, 2015
3. When he went on a mini tangent about everyone's pet peeve.
The holidays are a good time for the word moist because there are various cakes and cookies that can be moist— Gerard Way (@gerardway) December 24, 2015
You can then find out who can handle the word moist to see who you would choose to help you survive on a desert island— Gerard Way (@gerardway) December 24, 2015
4. If you say so, Gerard...

8. I don't... is that... a good thing?
This grape juice is the fucking cats ass right now— Gerard Way (@gerardway) December 6, 2015
9. When he taught us all about success.
Some people take measures to ensure they have a successful bowel movement in the new year, like eating Raisin Bran™ for example— Gerard Way (@gerardway) January 3, 2016
