Following in the footsteps of great entertainers before him, John Mayer (performing a concert in California Saturday) announced today that he quit Twitter. Some of these celebrities have a lot of nerve announcing something as unimportant as “quitting” Twitter. The same goes for actors announcing their retirement before the ripe old age of 25.
Listen, if you need a “time out” from society, then take it. Some may miss you, most will forget you, but you’ll be able to regroup and rejoin as a more invigorated person. Please don’t insult us by announcing your departure from a 140-word count status update site. It’s not news. Then again, we are some of your 3.7 million followers. The joke’s on us, I suppose.
