John Mayer, one of Hollywood's most prolific Twitterer, is on the verge of deleting his account, describing the social networking device as "over".

“Within in the last couple weeks, every night I think about canceling my Twitter account because I think it’s pretty much done,” John said during an on stage interview at ASCAP’s 2010 “I Create Music” EXPO in Hollywood.

“I just think Twitter as a form of communication, I think it’s over to be honest with you.”

John’s Twitter feed has prompted headlines on a number of topics including his apology after he used a racial slur in a Playboy interview.

Now though, the singer said the social networking site should be used in a different way. “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,” he said, reports Access Hollywood.

“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?’"

John said he has better things to do than receive abuse after each Tweet. “I might as well spend that time making a sandwich or building a model ship or something,” he said.

The singer is making another resolution: “My challenge going forward is to basically disregard the need, the obsessive need, for external validation.”
