Ahlan! Hates: The Intellectual Twitter Quitter!

13 Oct 2010

John has created great art since quitting Twitter... except, oh no, he hasn't

Why? Of all the reasons given by celebs who’ve suddenly realised they’re invading their own privacy by Tweeting their exact locations, John Mayer’s is the most face-punchy.

“It occurred to me that since the invocation of Twitter, nobody who has participated in it has created any lasting art,” intoned the ego-tastic singer, trying to come off like he’s the love child of Dorothy Parker and Will Shakespeare.

Know where he wrote that? On his blog – that other great internet forum for “lasting art”.

“I’m not knocking Twitter for those who are trying to make a name for themselves,” he graciously patronises. “But for established artists it’s a slow erosion of the artistic notion.”

And comments like that slowly erode our will to live. Sit down, John Mayer!
