John Mayer Might Quit Twitter: "It's Flawed"

Are You a Twitter Quitter?

John Mayer, arguably the king of Twitter TMI, might pull a Miley Cyrus and quit Twitter. While speaking at the ASCAP Expo in LA, John had this to say about the microblogging site: "Every night for the last two weeks, I think about canceling Twitter. It's over." John says that since joining Twitter he's earned himself an army of "haters," which he says he can do without.

"Why do I want more haters? If someone had told me when I signed up I'd get half a million haters . . . It (was) really sort of flawed from the beginning."

Given that he reportedly lost then-girlfriend Jennifer Aniston over his addiction to tweet, it's hard to say if he'll really go through with it. He has been tweet free for over a week though, so there's that.

While I've had friends threaten to become Twitter quitters, I've yet to see anyone commit to the move. How about you . . .

People don't know how to use Twitter correctly, that's the thing. Instead of ranting like Mr. Mayer does, it's suppose to be a communication tool where "news" is published.

Twitter has helped me stay in touch with people that don't use Facebook because they don't want their family to see every single thing they do. Facebook is overloaded with family members now and twitter seems to be where people "hide out" when they want to tweet about stuff that isn't family friendly.
