Having taken a break from talking about balling Jessica Simpson and such, John Mayer ended his self-imposed silence to share his thoughts on ... Twitter.
At ASCAP's 2010 "I Create Music" Expo, the singer admits he has been wrangling with a really tough decision concerning the microblogging site lately.
"Within in the last couple weeks," the douchebag says, "every night I think about canceling my Twitter account because I think it's pretty much done."
"I just think that Twitter, as a form of communication, I think it's over to be perfectly honest with you." So why is this the end? We'll let him explain:
John Mayer: SO over Twitter.
"I would rather see Twitter be a cork board of links to other more important things, because it's really sort of flawed from the beginning."
"I can't tell you how many times I meet people who write stuff and get upset they have haters now, like, ‘Why do I want to invent more reasons to have haters?' ... I might as well spend that time making a sandwich or building a model ship."
As for the future of Mayer personally Tweeting to his 3.2 million fans/haters/followers, he will continue, moderately, with one caveat: "My challenge going forward is to basically disregard the need, the obsessive need for external validation."
So there you have it. The Mayer hath spoken. Twitter is a fad... Facebook is forever.
