Celebs get unsociable with Twitter

Apparently there is a new trend among celebrities who can't take the heat from haters on their Twitter accounts. They delete them.

The latest celeb to take this drastic measure is R&B singer Monica, who deleted her account soon after annoucing her engagement to Lakers player Shannon Brown. Have we become so obsessed with following our favorite celebs that they feel they are somehow hurting us by not allowing us to see their tweets?

Other celebs who have taken this route include Miley Cyrus, Chris Brown, Kanye West and Swizz Beats' ex-wife, Mashonda. They all either deleted their accounts or took a "hiatus" after being harrassed by fellow tweeters.

I wonder how this affects their die-hard fans, and what message they are trying to send by making a dramatic exit from Twitter. Will it really stop the negative and the positive opinions of their lives? Probably not. Will this action let their fans know how upset they are? Maybe. I guess as long as social media reigns supreme, celebs will feel that the best way to express their dislikes is by deleting their Twitter or Facebook accounts or any other form of social media outreach.

If this is the new way of telling your fans to back off, then what measures will they take when they are really mad? Oh yeah, they leave that for rants on YouTube. *sigh*
