Currently with over 3 million Twitter followers, Mayer said, "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 or I'm having dinner with people who write stuff and they 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 or something."
In addition to a general waning of his Twitter addiction, many suggest that Twitter was a major cause of his breakup with Jenifer Aniston.
Either way, it is quite clear that the excessive use of a communication channel such as this seems a little 'compulsive.'
However, used properly (I sound like a doctor!) Twitter is simply another way to communicate with people. Any suggestion or recommendation for the demise of a service seems rather self-serving.
"Hi, my name is John Mayer ('Hello, John'); it's been 9 days since my last tweet."
