Miley Puts a Rap on Twitter

Despite her original statement that boyfriend Liam was her reason for deleting her Twitter page -- sending the blogosphere into a frenzy --  Miley Cyrus took to her Web site to share the "real reason" why she quit the social networking site – with a rap, of course.

"It wasn't because my friend told me to," she threw down. "I stopped living for moments and started living for people... I want my private life private. I'm living for me."

On her official site, Miley told her fans that she simply wants to take a break from the cyberspace world. "Twitter is not the only thing I am cutting back on. This is not an attack against this particular site, I just think kids all over the world could maybe take a little vacation from Cyberspace. My problem with the internet is it makes negativity so available. It allows people to anonymously hurt others without any consequences. That is not the real world. Not only that, but if we spent more time enjoying what we are doing besides tweeting about it, we would enjoy our lives a whole lot more. I have very little free time and the moments that I do have I should be spending with my family and friends and loving every minute of their company," she wrote.

"Now of course rumors have been started that Liam is the reason that I deleted my twitter. I hope my true fans know how stupid that is. I had mentioned to him that someone made a fake twitter with his name and we both starting chatting about how ridiculous it is. Liam is a wonderful friend and he did not try to make me delete my page, he just helped me realize how much time I was wasting on that site," she added.

Should more teens follow Miley's lead and lay off the computer for a while? Chime in below!
