tbd if he got a better self-promotion deal from another service
Could it be that the shark has been leaped over and left for dead? Has Twitter suddenly become passe?
This is the question of moment because of some utterly painful news for the state of microblogging. John Mayer, he of the curly locks and associations with desirable women, has shut his Twitter doors and hung out his whale.
According to Yahoo Music, Mayer has decided to leave behind his 3.7 million followers and strum off into the sunset.
Naturally, theories abound as to why this mercurial figure has taken such a draconian step. Yahoo reminds us that Mayer did happen to say earlier this year: "I just think Twitter as a form of communication, I think it's over to be honest with you."
