Maybe I am reading too much into this, well – I won’t read into it at all. Matt Cutts of Google posted on Twitter that he is trying to “do a purge of SEO tweeters to rein things in a bit.”
The context was about people asking him SEO related Google questions often on Twitter and what he is doing about that.
Here are the tweets:
@KrisRoadruck yup, I did do a purge of SEO tweeters to rein things in a bit.

The problem is, people like me, I keep dragging him back into the SEO world. I won’t let him go. 🙂
I don’t blame him for wanting to purge the SEO out of his world. I mean, he should be deciding within a month if he is staying at Google and if so, in what capacity. I have to assume it won’t be related to the SEO space. Much of his SEO history was in a position of defending Google, while fighting SEO spam. It isn’t easy.
So let Matt purge us, the SEO industry, out of his life – or at least his Twitter space.
