John, who hasn’t posted to Twitter in over a week, mentioned the site during an on stage interview at ASCAP’s 2010 I Create Music EXPO.
“Within in the last couple weeks, every night I think about cancelling my Twitter account because I think it’s pretty much done,” he told the crowd. “I just think Twitter as a form of communication, I think it’s over, to be honest with you.”
He reckons the site can be improved though.
“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.”
