The hits just keep on coming from the Jo Bros camp. After announcing the cancellation of their 19 date comeback tour last week just two days before it was set to kick off on October 11, it appears the end is nigh for the trio. The Jonas Brothers have quit Twitter.
With each passing minute that goes by without an update from the band’s official Twitter, it represents another nail in the coffin holding our dreams that the bros would bro it out and bro back to business.
Alas, Kevin, Nick and Joe aren’t the first musicians to quit Twitter and some have even returned to the 140 character land of hashtags and bitlys. Let’s have a look, shall we?
Poor Adele! The singer deleted her Twitter account in November 2012 after receiving threats online from people threatening to kill her new baby. #CallThePolice!
Like a bad smell that just won’t go away, Chris Brown continues to cause problems on Twitter and get our hopes up with quitting, but always comes back for more. After making derogatory comments against comedienne Jenny Johnson in 2012, Brown deactivated his account…and was back online the very next day.
Demi Lovato posted a number of Tweets about surrounding yourself with people you can communicate with before taking a break from social media in January 2013. The X Factor coach has since rejoined Twitter.
John Mayer’s self-imposed retreat from the media in 2010 included shutting down his Twitter account. The singer has since regrouped and rejoined Twitter.
Kanye West quit Twitter for a full 24 hours in October 2012. He still only follows girlfriend Kim Kardashian online, but does use the networking site to keep fans up to date on his likes, dislikes, and why he thinks Jimmy Kimmel looks like Spongebob.
Kid Cudi quit Twitter for two years in 2009, only to return in 2011 and quit again. Maybe some people just don’t like to tweet?
Lady Gaga temporarily shut down her Twitter account in February 2013 while she recovered from emergency hip surgery that forced Mother Monster to cancel her world tour. She began retweeting fans in June and has since made a full comeback, both with her hip and her tweeting thumbs.
Lily Allen quit Twitter in 2009 over concern that she was addicted to the site. She later returned and shut down her page again in 2012 over racist tweets. Allen is back online…for now.
Lupe Fiasco didn’t give much of a reason for quitting Twitter in 2011, but quickly handled over his account and followers to artists Nikki Jean, who then began promoting her own album on the page. That was nice of him?
Miley Cyrus is a double Twitter quitter. She first quit in 2009 and again in 2013 after media began hounding the starlet about her relationship with former fiance Liam Hemsworth. Miley is back on the social media bandwagon and boasts almost 15 million followers.
Nicki Minaj left Twitter after a number of her tracks were leaked online. The Super Bass singer has since returned to the site.
After becoming sick of what he said were “useless opinions and hate”, One Direction’s Zayn Malik quit Twitter in the summer of 2012. He has since returned to Twitter and doubled his number of followers from 5 million to over 10 million.
