If you're following John Mayer on Twitter, you're part of the nightmare.

I think it was Lennon who said, ""If everyone demanded IRL instead of another twitter, then there'd be peace.""

John Mayer is probably getting ready for Diaspora to start up. He's always ahead of his time in terms of social networking technology.

I guess he decided to take Chris Griffin's advice...

Yawn, this mocking of new communications methods was pithier when it was Thoreau doing it in the 1850s.

Return to the nonrelevance from which you never emerged.

Mayer shut his account after tweeting: "What does this button do?"

that's kind of funny.
also, behind all the tabloid crap, he's a terrific guitarist.

Once you close an account, all the posts are erased, so how did the media know? More importantly, how did he know anyone would know and be able to appreciate the joke? Even if you had heard he was leaving, how would you know which tweet was the very last until the account was actually closed? This was either dumb luck thanks to someone randomly taking a screenshot, or (more likely) he (or an assistant) took a screenshot themselves and sent it to the media. "Hey, didja hear I left Twitter?? Tee hee! Look how clever I am! Look at me, look at me, look at me!!!"

The time is coming soon when Twitter will be realized as one of the most retarded "technologies" ever to be developed.

Or, you know, a journalist (term applied loosely) may have anticipated that the target audience for a piece like this would want to know and then done the right thing and asked "a question" such as "What was the final Tweet you put out over Twitter?"

Just saying it is possibly not as dramatic as you'd like all John Mayer news to be.

If you're following someone and get their tweets on your phone, you get anything that's posted, as soon as it's posted, even if it's later deleted.

which means I get multiples of tweets when someone posts, deletes, and corrects a typo.
