Chris Brown is keeping his thoughts to himself now that he’s deleted his Twitter account.
A visit to @MechanicalDummy will only yield a message stating, “Sorry, that page doesn’t exist.” However, as thousands upon thousands of fans know, that was once Chris’ nest on Twitter from which he broadcast nearly any and everything that was on his mind.
But his Twitter went silent Monday afternoon, after he posted a message saying, "I WANNA THANK MY FANS FOR ALL THE SUPPORT. I LOVE YALL. GOODBYE!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Chris didn’t specify what prompted him to cut off his micro blog, but his tweets have raised eyebrows in the past, especially when he would talk about his ex-girlfriend Rihanna. Most recently he threw a Twitter tantrum after visiting a Wallingford, Connecticut, Wal-Mart that didn’t have his new album, Graffiti, in stock.
“I’m tired of this sh*t. major stores r blackballing my cd. not stockin the shelves and lying to customers. what the f*ck do i gotta do,” he tweeted Friday before asserting that he wouldn’t be retracting those statements. “im not biting my tongue about sh*t else…the industry can kiss my *ss.” Chris was especially mad that the Wal-mart manager didn’t seem to know anything about why Graffiti wasn’t on shelves or in the back. However, a store clerk told MTV News that they had actually sold out of the CD.
This makes Chris the second high-profile teen idol to quit Twitter. Miley Cyrus left the micro-blog site a few months ago.
