John Mayer: Twitter Is 'Pretty Much Done'

The singer and cyber-philospher has seen the future, and says tweets will no longer be in the picture

John Mayer is predicting the fall of Twitter.

"Within in the last couple weeks, every night I think about canceling my Twitter account because I think it's pretty much done," he says. "I just think Twitter as a form of communication, I think it's over to be honest with you."

So, what's the singer's beef with the social networking site? Too many haters.

"I would rather see Twitter be a cork board of links to other more important things, because it's really sort of flawed from the beginning. I can't tell you how many times I meet people or I'm having dinner with people who write stuff and they get upset they have haters now, like, ‘Why do I want to invent more reasons to have haters?' I might as well spend that time making a sandwich or building a model ship or something."

Mayer has come under fire more than a few times for comments he's made, so it seems as if he's trying to keep himself out of trouble.

"My challenge going forward is to basically disregard the need, the obsessive need for external validation," he says.

Good luck with all that, John.
