On September 24, famed venture capitalist Marc Andreessen departed from Twitter with a bang. Now it appears the Netscape founder never actually left. Even though Andreessen hasn’t been tweeting himself, he’s still engaging with the social media platform’s worst feature—other people’s accounts. Gizmodo investigated Andreessen’s recent “Likes” and damn, homeboy’s been busy.
On that fateful day in September, Andreessen annihilated his thousands of legendary tweets—covering a wide variety of topics from how technological innovation helps the poors more than the elites to the upsides of colonialism—leaving the platform with the simple message:
But how long did it take ol’ Marc to get back on the bird after calling it quits? Twitter doesn’t timestamp likes, but this is the first tweet he engaged with after September 24.
Five days after he announced his alleged hiatus, one Twitter user noticed he was still following new people.
As of November 28, Andreessen is following 10,700 people, which suggests he’s actually been pretty busy throughout his “break.”
