John Mayer’s Twitter abstinence is short-lived


Back on Sunday, “Waiting on the World to Change” singer John Mayer intimated on his Twitter page that he was looking to take a break from the social networking website for people with short attention spans.john-mayer

“Suffering cerebral atrophy,” Mayer wrote. “Since I’ve been communicating in short pulses, I’ve been writing lyrics the same way.”

In a follow-up post, Mayer added: “The single-serve idea is killing my writing. Laying off a little in the coming weeks. Need books, thoughts, a sequence of ideas that build.”

All well and good. After all, communicating with your fans in 140 characters or less can be limiting. But then Mayer followed that pair of Sunday posts with a number of new Twitter updates.

UPDATE-Jon and Kate take a break
