Alec Baldwin arrived at JFK airport in New York City Tuesday night after Tweeting that he was removed from an earlier flight for playing the mobile game Words With Friends on board.

But he also made another key departure: from Twitter.

The 30 Rock actor, 50, now has a deactived Twitter account after he documented the drama in real time on the social media site.

"Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving," he first Tweeted on Tuesday, before going on to blast the airline.

"#nowonderamericaairisbankrupt," he wrote, followed by, "Now on the 3 o'clock American flight. The flight attendants already look.....smarter."

Still, he wasn't done sounding off on the flight attendants, also adding: "#theresalwaysunited Last flight w American. Where retired Catholic school gym teachers from the 1950's find jobs as flight attendants."

Though he may be Tweet-free now, Baldwin could be back – if other stars' Twitter departures are any indication. Miley Cyrus, Chris Brown, Jesse James and Lily Allen all swore off the site, only to eventually return.

And his rep says Baldwin's departure from Twitter is indeed temporary, telling PEOPLE, "It's just on hold while he focuses on 30 Rock."
