Not that one person represents a trend but pop star Miley Cyrus has quit Twitter.
Yup, the 16-year-old’s account has been deleted, leaving her 1.1 million followers clearly disappointed about no longer being able to receive 140-character (or less) updates about her life as a singer and actress.
The question is whether Miley’s disappearing act is a sign of the times? Is it an indication that celebrities are tired of Twitter? After all, it takes a lot of work to provide updates on what you’re doing and thinking to an audience hungry for each bit of info.
If I was a betting man, the next high-profile celebrity to toss aside Twitter may be Oprah Winfrey, who updates so infrequently, she might as well not update at all.
Since her high-profile introduce to Twitter earlier this year, Oprah had written a whopping 71 updates.
