Soon after Mozilla announced on Thursday that Brendan Eich had decided to step down as CEO of Mozilla, his Twitter page went dark.

Eich had posted few messages on Twitter under @BrendanEich in the less than two weeks that it took Eich, the inventor of Javascript and a co-founder of Mozilla, to make the trip to the CEO's office and back.

“Sorry, that page doesn't exist!” is all that remains of where Eich once connected with his more than 31,000 followers.

Eich's final tweet was a March 26 link to a blog post in which he discussed his commitment to diversity. “Inclusiveness at Mozila [sic],” he messaged.

Much of the backlash that Eich faced took place on social media, where employees openly called for Eich to resign over his support for Proposition 8, California's former constitutional amendment banning gay marriage. Proposition 8 was approved in November 2008 and stood until last year, when the Supreme Court left in place a lower court ruling declaring it invalid.

In an effort to mollify his opponents, Eich promised to reach out to the LGBT community. But in an interview with, he refused to say where he stood on the issue of marriage equality.
