Interesting, but since he posted absolutely nothing about RDs on his Twitter page, not relevant.

If I remember correctly, his political stance was right-wing / conservative. Many conservatives have been deleting their Twitter accounts over perceived bias by Twitter against anybody who's right of Stalin.

Wow! What's next. He closing up shop
Again, he posted absolutely nothing to his Twitter account about radar detectors. If he's closing up shop and he's going to have a lot of free time, why delete his Twitter account?

Another thing to consider: it's really, really easy to get banned on Twitter if you're a conservative. Twitter banned me for tweeting "Learn to code". No, really, they did.

He may have retweeted a conservative post or made one himself and got himself banned. (shrugs)

Exactly! I was about to say "Or they shut it down for him !!!"

Never ceases to amuse me how many irrationally paranoid people there are...
Nobody shut down his Twitter - there was no offensive content (no racism, no sexism, no calling anyone names or harassing them), he just reposted political and pseudo-science BS and he does not even have many followers. Most likely he just decided it is not worth reposting stuff that he did and he did not want to post any personal stuff like "what I did today" and closed the account.

Hey, I didn't start with paranoid theories ;-)
Like I said, it's most likely he just got bored with retweeting. Or maybe wanted to start new account. In any case, I am sure he's fine.

This is entirely possible as well.

Many people are seeing having a social media presence as a liability nowadays. I myself have trimmed back. There's a very good chance you're right: he just decided it wasn't worth the effort and deleted it.
