When someone deletes thousands of tweets almost overnight with no reason given to why, like with James Gunn, you know something shady is going on behind the scenes. Former Nickelodeon mega-producer Dan Schneider has deleted over 14,000 tweets in the last week which has many people talking about if there is a big story on the horizon. Schneider has long been associated with online rumors of sexual abuse of teens who have worked on his many shows over the last couple of decades and this will surely add to speculation when thousands of his tweets disappear from his account.
According to researcher @Mooncult, who was the first one to make the discovery, 15,000 tweets have been removed which amounts to more than half Schneider’s entire tweet history.
Twitter account JohnDoe78359022 has cataloged a list of tweets that have been deleted, most of them involved references Dan make to his teenage co-stars at the time. To make things even more interesting, as John Doe points out, the deleted tweets have a particular theme: all @DanWarp tweets mentioning “child,” “foot,” and “toes” have been deleted.”
Last year, Nickelodeon finally parted ways with Dan Schneider after a 25-year relationship that saw him work on such teen shows as Zoey 101, Victorious, All That, and The Amanda Show.
