As is the case with a lot of celebrities doing random, stupid or normal things and the media telling you to stop breathing and to pay full attention, John Mayer is now in the spotlight for deleting his Twitter account. His Twitter account had around 3.7 million followers and now John Mayer has instead moved on to a Tumblr account.
Publicists are telling you and others that John Mayer’s account existed solely to promote his new album and tour. The fascination of seeing someone relatively famous on Twitter or other social networks makes people assume that such a person loves technology or social media. People assumed that with John Mayer when he started tweeting. In reality, as now we know, many of such people, including John Mayer, go online solely to sell stuff, and not to actually interact.
While John Mayer’s deletion of Twitter account will be history in less than a week, it does bring to spotlight the reasons why people actually tweet online.
