The Twitter community may be mourning the loss of John Mayer but the singer says he left the social networking site for the sake of his art.
MTV reports that the former king of oversharing, who quit Twitter in September, explained it all in a blog post that appears to have been removed. "It occurred to me that since the invocation of Twitter, nobody who has participated in it has created any lasting art," he wrote. "And yes! Yours truly is included in that roundup as well."
In fact, Mayer, 32, claims that most people's tweets are "disposable," and goes on to question, "Has any artist, since they've begun to give you daily insights into their life, created their best work yet? Are the best writers of our time on Twitter?"

You’re an internationally renowned musician, in the middle of a tour - what do you do on a rare off night?
For John Mayer, the answer was easy as he prepared for a show on his “Battle Studies” tour in Atlanta: Go back to where it all started.
Tuesday night Mayer tweeted around 10:30 p.m., “Atlanta people! Lets jam out at Eddie’s Attic in Decatur. 11:30pm. Heading over now.” By the time it hit 11:30 p.m. the line wrapped around the block and down the street for a rare 21+ show for only $10.

On Thursday, HuffPo wondered if the soulful singer and his ex Jennifer Aniston were back on, quoting a London newspaper’s account of statements he reportedly made at his Hollywood Bowl show on Sunday.
“You can still start over again from home base,” Mayer reportedly said. “Next time you get a text from the one you love just text back 'come over' - no matter what happened in the past. If you really love someone, just tell them and be with them.”

John Mayer has pulled out of the rest of his European tour due to an illness, according to a message posted on the musician's website.
“After performing in a sold-out show in Copenhagen, John Mayer was forced to cancel his second show there on 5/31,” the statement reads. The same goes for the remaining European shows that were scheduled in Amsterdam, Madrid and Manchester; the statement instructs ticket holders to apply for a refund.
If you’re fretful about Mayer’s health, this should ease your worry: the talkative singer is headed home to the States, and “a full recovery is expected under doctor’s supervision,” the statement said.
