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?
