John Mayer, the man who updates his Twitter 20+ times a day and whose girlfriend dumped him because of it, thinks Twitter is silly and dumb. He says he only uses the 140 character blogging service because all the cool kids are doing it.
“If you really think that Twitter is the pathway to spiritual enlightenment, well…It’s one step away from sending pictures of your poop.”
I’ve always communicated at a high level as best I can whether it’s Twitter, Napster or message boards or wherever,” Mayer said. “I don’t have a devotion to Twitter. I didn’t sell out to Twitter. You do Twitter until everybody gets off of Twitter and it’s something else you go and try out.”
This is true. Just look at some high level tweets John Mayer has posted:
I’m nice enough but I ramble on and on and on and on. And I blink a lot. And hard. Hard blinking, like full face blinking.
Okay, the XOXO was a little too unisex for me. For the ladies: XOXO. For the men: sweet, brah.
John Mayer’s Twitter is a door to adventure and excitement! Seriously. Has anybody told John Mayer he’s a douchebag yet? I mean, on Twitter? Someone really should. That way we’ll have finally called him that through every possible medium: real life, e-mail, blogs, telepathy. If anyone knows someone that’s about to die, can you tell them to haunt Mayer from beyond the grave and call him a douchebag too? I just want to have all our bases covered.
