Graceful way to close Twitter account?

After quite a while of monitoring and analyzing our Twitter activity, we've decided our audience just isn't on Twitter, and Twitter doesn't fit our needs. Are there any tips, tricks, or best practices for bowing out of the Twittersphere and closing our account?

 

Do we need to do a formal "so long, Twitter" post? Or is it okay to just delete the account without a word? Seems odd to not say anything...

 

Any thoughts would be helpful!

Thanks for the tag, @jennysowyrda 

 

Maybe ...
-1- Stop distributing content via Twitter.
-2- Setup Buffer to auto-tweet a "We've Moved" message periodically -- e.g., once every 30 days for 90 days.
-3- Greet Twitter-referred visitors with a special 'thank you for following us from Twitter' message -- e.g., via email.
-4- ?? No opinion on closing account. We've seen clients with zombie Twitter accounts for YEARS -- i.e., last tweet = 2015!
