John Mayer closes Twitter account, leaves millions of fans

John Mayer closes Twitter account, leaves millions of fans John Mayer has deleted his Twitter account this week, leaving millions of followers stranded without updates from the pop star.
At 3.7 million followers, Mayer was in 11th place, behind the likes of Lady Gaga, Justin Beiber and Barack Obama.

When asked why he shutdown the account, Mayer said it was because his recent tour was "now at a close and a return to the studio planned."

Mayer was an active "tweeter" and even used the micro-blogging site to defend his statements made during a now infamous Playboy interview. During the interview, he used the "N-word" and also discussed his sexual past with Jessica Simpson.

Despite leaving Twitter, Mayer says he will continue to give updates through Tumblr.

"I think I made the right choice," he said. "I now have an even larger Tumblr addiction but it's sort of like a book addiction, or a gambling addiction where you always walk away with the casino's money."

Is this the type of news we can expect from aD from now on?

Shouldn't we get news about how Master HDCP key was released/leaked?

1115.9.2010 12:04

"leaving millions of followers stranded" - I took this as sarcasm. I think this made AD news simply because the folks submitting the news here were glad to see him drop out.

This guy is one of the biggest douchebags in recent history. His Playboy interview was jaw droppingly insipid and vain. I've never consciously/willingly listened to any of his music, but if it's as bad as that Playboy interview I don't want to.

Wow I just read parts of it. I think hes totally not a douche bag. A scum bag on the other hand is more appropriate because he's actually a loser.

I apolagise A.d., I see posting this was a way of expressing great happiness. Or I would if you didnt make it sounds like it puts others at risk of something :|

Wow, finally someone who got it. Thank you Iguana, seriously.

Who cares? Why is this even news? I can't wait for 2012 so we don't have to read BS news like this anymore!

doesn't "Pop" in Pop Star stand for Popular?
Who the hell is this guy?


Oh, Im sorry... Did the middle of my sentence interrupt the beginning of yours?

2015.9.2010 18:24

I think we've established a lot of you don't know who he is, however, that's on you...not on AD to educate you. This guy gets a lot of press and does make a lot of money.

If you have no clue who he is, then you don't listen to any sort of pop culture or music news. That's fine. I wish I didn't know who this guy was. He's played with BB King, Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy, John Scofield. He's opened for the Rolling Stones. Won two Grammy's (nominated for 5) in 2007. Featured on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine. Selected by Time Magazine as one of the "100 Most Influential People of 2007." He released an album late 2009, but it didn't do as well as his first two.

FFS, I could go on and on just listing facts from Wikipedia. Go read the Playboy article and you will understand why this guy is a big douchebag and people dislike him so much (and no...I'm not going to argue semantics regarding the merits of scumbag vs douchebag).

John Mayer is an absolutely amazing person. He is the ultimate troll and I have the utmost respect for him. The stuff he said in playboy is hilarious, and everyone needs to lighten up over it. HE WAS ON THE CHAPPELES SHOW! BLACK PEOPLE LOVE HIM! WHITE PEOPLE LOVE HIM MORE AND HE MAKES THEM DANCE!

It was funny. Not to mention his music is great. Him deleting his twitter is just him trolling his fans. I appreciate that afterdawn can see why this is so funny too. I'm assuming this article wasn't written because they were heart broken about it.

2215.9.2010 19:23

You know better than I if he was having an inside laugh with his fans. All I know are a few of the highlights of his Playboy interview that just made my head want to explode. I didn't see the humor in it and I typically try to.

2316.9.2010 16:07

LOOL I fail.

But yeh - he's still a loser :)

Hang on...isn't he the long lost brother-in-law of J.J. Jones? Sounds like the same guy to me. Not as famous as Fluffee Talks though on YouTube. Now that guy brings you the news.
