John Mayer quits Twitter

john-meyerJohn Mayer has closed his Twitter account. According to the AP, a spokesperson for the singer-guitarist and enthusiastic multi-media communicator said that he had quit because his Battle Studies Tour is “now at a close and a return to the studio planned.” More than 3.7m people followed Mayer on the social networking site.

Personally, I’m untroubled by this news. Mayer will apparently continue to communicate with fans via his blog and, in truth, he seems more suited to a wordier format, as he recently demonstrated with his lengthy, and fairly hilarious, attack on the Huffington Post. Also, as wise person once said: “Today’s Twitter quitter, might be tomorrow’s Twitter un-quitter.” I think that was Aristotle. Or maybe Amanda Bynes.

What do you think about Twitter’s latest quitter?

      • Elysia

        Tweeting was never really under for most of us. What’s the point when you can do so much more on Facebook?

  • mscisluv

    Ew – do NOT link to Perez Hilton’s site! I don’t want to give that man any more hits.

  • Silent Rage

    I get this is Entertainment Weekly and all but seriously…is it really news that someone quits twitter? Every time someone deletes their account will EW be all over it?

  • plushpuppy

    • James S.

      That was clever the first twelve million times. How about something a little less stale, huh?

  • James S.

    Seriously? This is f-ing news? He didn’t rob a bank and go down in a hail of gunfire, he closed his freaking Twitter account. Jesus.

  • Tom

    Really slow news day is it?

  • slowcloud

    I hope this is a sign of the ultimate demise of this idiotic trend of “micro blogging” that celebrated the butchering of proper grammar, spelling, language and actual communication.

  • Gary

    Looks like he changed his mind. “jhnmyr” is now taken on Twitter.

  • Katie

    Maybe he’s growing up…now, if only I could…

  • Miss Liz

    ok…i like how this news haha

  • Jen

    Only twits attack those who Tweet. There’s absolutely NOTHING wrong with being on Twitter because chances are, you won’t get it anyway.

  • gigi
